As we prepare for tomorrow's visit of Wrexham (1pm kick-off), we look at a trio of current Spireites who have played for both clubs.

1. Scott Boden – Chesterfield (2008-2013 & 2019-Present) & Wrexham (2017-2018)

Following a spell at Sheffield United, Scott Boden joined Chesterfield in 2008 and spent five years in north Derbyshire, winning a League Two title and a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. The striker scored 17 goals in 118 games, many of which were as a substitute.

Stints at Macclesfield Town, Halifax Town, Newport County and Inverness Caledonian Thistle followed prior to a move to the Racecourse Ground.

The forward only spent a year with the Red Dragons, scoring three times in 36 appearances as Wrexham finished tenth in the National League.

Boden enjoyed a fruitful spell at Gateshead before returning to the Proact Stadium in January 2019.

The 30-year-old has continued his good goalscoring form with 19 goals in 46 game since his return to the club.

2. Sam Wedgbury – Wrexham (2017-2018) & Chesterfield (2018-Present)

After his promotion to League Two with Forest Green Rovers, Sam Wedgbury joined Wrexham in May 2017.

The midfielder signed a contract extension in February 2018 but had his contract cancelled in May of that year. During his time with the Red Dragons, Wedgbury played 42 times, scoring once.

A few months later he signed for Chesterfield. Unfortunately, his season was cut short after suffering an ACL injury.

Wedgbury has since recovered from this setback and slotted back into the heart of the midfield alongside Curtis Weston and Jonathan Smith.

3. Mike Fondop – Wrexham (2018-2019) & Chesterfield (2019-Present)

Mike Fondop started his career at Stanway Rovers before having spells at Billericay Town, Margate, Oxford City, Guiseley and Halifax Town before making his way to North Wales in 2018.

He hit the ground running, scoring five times in his first six games. However, the goals dried up as the season progressed.

Fondop was sent out on loan to Maidenhead United and eventually moved to the Proact Stadium in August of last year after scoring a total of five goals in 36 games.

‘Big Mike’, as he affectionately known in Derbyshire, started as he meant to go on with a brace in his debut against Barnet. He has scored 11 times in 27 appearances so far, with one of the goals coming against Wrexham back in October.
