Chesterfield bolster defence with loan signing from Sheffield United
Chesterfield have bolstered their defensive options with the signing of a Sheffield United youngster.
Wing-back Jake Bennett has joined the Spireites for the rest of the 2018/19 campaign.
The 22-year-old, who signed for the Blades from Mickleover Sports, made his first team debut in last season’s 3-2 win over Walsall in the EFL Cup.
Chesterfield boss Martin Allen plans to involve Bennett in his matchday squad this weekend.
