After Chesterfield drew against Staveley Miners Welfare in their first pre-season friendly, assistant manager Glynn Snodin claimed that changes at half-time had an impact on the game.
“I thought the first half went well,” he said.
“In the second half, we put a lot of the youngsters on and a lot of the trialists on.
“It was a little bit mix and match.
“I think it’s difficult when you change so much in the second half.”
Staveley pegged the Spireites back on a number of occasions and were in front during Saturday’s pre-season fixture, in what was a high scoring game that ended 4-4.
The assistant manager praised the hosts after the match, by stating: “Second half I thought they were very good.
“They looked sharp and lively. They did very well in the second half.”
Levi Amantchi and Jack Holmes were both on target at Staveley and Snodin explained that the upcoming friendlies will give the youngsters an opportunity to gain experience.
“It’s great for them to learn,” Snodin put forward.
“It’s a lovely pitch and stadium. They were against some decent players.
“It was a good contest for them.”
