CHESTERFIELD manager John Sheridan is expected to reveal which of his out-of- contract players are to be offered new deals in the next few days.

Striker and leading goalscorer Craig Davies has indicated that he would be willing to stay at the B2net Stadium, providing the offer is right, though he is likely to be offered attractive deals that may prove to be beyond the Spireites’ current reach.

Sheridan, set to sign a new five-year deal, is also hoping Tommy Lee will extend his stay. The goalkeeper is out of contract in the summer.

The Football Association won’t take action against the League Two champions after Bury’s Cameron Belford was assaulted in last month’s league meeting.

Chesterfield supporters invaded the pitch during the top-of-the-table clash and one fan who punched Belford in the face was subsequently arrested after being caught in the act by a press photographer at the game.

Chairman Barrie Hubbard said: “In football terms we have been yellow carded but it could have been so much worse because the FA has a wide range of sanctions at its disposal.”

Meanwhile, Chesterfield have revealed their pre-season programme which includes home matches against two Championship clubs, Coventry City and Hull City. They will be on Tuesday July 26 and Saturday July 30 respectively.

Promoted-to-the-Conference Alfreton Town (Friday July 15), Matlock Town (Tuesday July 19) and Macclesfield Town (Saturday July 23) will host the Spireites.
