CHESTERFIELD fans are anxiously waiting for the club’s next move into the transfer market

With only former Yeovil Town left-back Nathan Smith signed up so far, supporters are desperate for news on cover for striker Craig Davies, who joined Barnsley, and loan winger Deane Smalley, who moved from parent club Oldham Athletic to Oxford United.

Clayton Donaldson (Crewe) and Chris Porter (Derby) are the two names mentioned most frequently, although the latter has had more than his fair share of injury issues during his time at Pride Park.

He was an Oldham player under John Sheridan, so the Spireites manager knows all about his strengths.

With the first team due back from pre-season training in a fortnight, at least three new faces are expected by then.

Meanwhile, Spireites bosses are looking at doing their bit for the environment. Chesterfield Council is considering an application, made by Tankersley bases Nationwide Solar Ltd to install 798 solar panels on the roof of the B2net’s Karen Child South Stand.

Few UK football stadiums have so far taken advantage of the power of the sun.
