Drew Talbot (2019) - Technically a three-time Spireite, Talbot was released at the end of last season, then re-signed by Martin Allen on a one-year deal. He may not play again this season after a series of operations on his knee.
Ify Ofoegbu (2019) - The teenager, who made his first team debut in October 2016, played his first league games for the club in December. His deal, which was signed in October last year, runs out this summer.
Jerome Binnom-Williams (2019) - ankle surgery derailed the left back not long after he penned a two-year deal in the summer of 2017. Since Town's relegation to the National League, he's played 26 league games.

Michael Nelson (2019) - The 38-year-old centre-half, described as 'very old' by Martin Allen in a press release, has played once since September. He lasted nine minutes on Boxing Day, was substituted and hasn't played since.
Laurence Maguire (2021) - the home grown centre-half recently signed a contract extension that will keep him at the club for a further two years. He's coming back from injury and should add to his 21 appearances this season.
Will Evans (2020) - Roy of the Rovers himself, Evans has had an action packed time of it lately. He's scored goals, saved a penalty and cemented a place in the defence. He signed a two-year deal last summer.
Jamie Sharman (2020) - another academy product, who made his first team breakthrough this season, Sharman signed an 18-month deal and the club have an option for a further year.
Robbie Weir (2019) - the midfielder signed late summer 2017 and signed a one-year deal, but made enough appearances last season to trigger a second year. Looked set to leave last summer, but stayed. Back in the side now.
Sam Wedgbury (2020) - the combative midfielder joined last summer on a two-year deal but injured his ACL three games into the season and required surgery. He's 'working his socks off' rehabbing, says John Sheridan
Jonathan Smith (2020) - he made his loan move from Stevenage permanent and signed a deal until next summer. He's become the captain and been ever present in the line-up.
Curtis Weston (2021) - the midfielder has started all but two of Chesterfield's National League games since signing in the summer.
Charlie Wakefield (2019) - It will soon be two years since Wakefield broke into the first team during Gary Caldwell's reign. But since his April 2017 debut he's made just three more appearances, all of which came last season.
Joe Rowley (2021) - In January 2018 the youngster signed a three and a half year contract extension. Still only 19, he's made more than 20 appearances this season to take his Town tally to 60 games.
Charlie Carter (2020) - Chesterfield signed the goalscoring midfielder from Woking last summer and handed him a two-year deal, with an option for a third year. He twice damaged his ankle and had surgery but will soon be fit again.

Lee Shaw (2020) - Shaw was signed from Grantham on a two-year deal with an option for a third year. He's a striker but has played wide right for Town and endeared himself to fans with his work rate.
