The Proact Stadium will host the Blades Under 23s

The Spireites and their Premier League neighbours, who meet this summer in a pre-season friendly, have come to an agreement that will see the majority of the Under 23s matches take place at the Sheffield Road ground.

READ: No surprise if Blades become Spireites this summerGames will be played on Mondays, when possible, but they won't take place the day before a Chesterfield home fixture.

Season ticket holders of both clubs can gain entry to the games free of charge.

Town CEO Graham Bean hopes the move further strengthens the bond between the clubs.
