PICTURES: Ched Evans begins training with Chesterfield
Controversial striker Ched Evans joined his new team mates at Chesterfield for the first day of pre-season training on Monday.
The former Sheffield United striker has not played professionally in four years after a two-and-a-half year jail sentence for rape. But his conviction was overturned in April and a retrial will begin in October.
He was one of five summer signings for the Spireites put through their paces at Hasland Road.
Paul McGinn, Jon Nolan, Kristian Dennis and Reece Mitchell joined in for the first time along the existing Chesterfield squad as strength and conditioning coach Mal Purchase led the sessions.
