After a dozen players left the Proact earlier in the week, Chesterfield manager John Sheridan laid out his recruitment plans for the summer.
Sheridan began by mentioning that he is looking to acquire players that have the right character and also fit his style of play.
“I would say around five or six players that I’ll try and bring in,” he said.
“I’ve got to make us stronger. I’ve got to bring the right people in who are good characters and suit the way we play.
“I want the players to demand from each other. I think it’s part and parcel of hopefully, in the long run, being a successful team.”
Spireite stalwart Drew Talbot was among the players that have departed, after making over 300 appearances for the club and was captain near the end of his Chesterfield career.
With Talbot leaving, Sheridan pointed out that he is very much focussed on bringing in players that are capable of being leaders on the pitch, by saying: “The players I’m identifying and trying to bring in are hopefully going to be leaders.
“It’s important that I bring the right people in to strengthen us and if I do that we will be competing next year.”
