Spireites midfielder Sam Wedgbury has declared that he is looking forward to the new season after an injury-stricken first campaign at the club.
“I’m really excited, it’s like the first day of school again,” he said to Spireites Digital.
“I’m looking forward to getting going again, especially after last season.”
The 30-year-old added that he is feeling good and is back to full fitness ahead of the start of pre-season.
“The injury has gone now, and I’m looking forward to coming back,” explained Wedgbury.
“This summer I’ve been concentrating on strengthening my leg.”
The players begin pre-season training on Saturday, and the midfielder stressed how crucial the training sessions are in order to be ready for the beginning of the new campaign.
“We’ve got a great set of lads, a good group, and we need to set a high tempo going into the first day.
“We’ll have a tough pre-season to make sure we’re ready for the first game.”
The Spireites completed a trio of signings earlier in the week with Anthony Gerrard, Josef Yarney and Jack McKay joining the club.
When asked about the incoming players, Wedgbury was very positive about the signings, by stating: “It’s been very good.
“Some of the boys we’ve brought in, we’ve done well to get. There are a few really good players that I know a bit about.
“It’s a squad game. There might be times where I might be playing or not be playing, and it’s about staying positive around the lads.
“If you’re in the team you need to work hard, and if you’re not in the team you need to work hard to get back into the team.”
The midfielder finished off by putting forward that consistency will be key next season if they are to achieve the goal of promotion.
“We need to turn more results in and demand more from one another,” he said.
“When we’re over that white line, we need to drag one another through the game.
“I’m really confident this year, and why can’t we make a bit of history.”
