CHESTERFIELD striker Jordan Bowery, who turned 20 last week, is expected to play a much bigger part in the first team next season.

Tall, strong and quick, he has made only 11 starts but has featured as a sub 39 times.

Manager John Sheridan and his team are known to be big supporters of the youngster and ,with no replacements yet for Barnsley-bound Craig Davies and Deane Smalley, who opted to join Oxford after a loan from Oldham at the B2net, the rookie frontman could well be thrust into the limelight more.

The son of Bert Bowery - the first man Brian Clough signed for Nottingham Forest - Bowery has all the attributes to make the grade.

But fans will still be hoping that Sheridan brings in a proven goalscorer, having lost the two who scored nearly 40 goals last season.
