League Two champions Chesterfield will take on Premier League opposition in the form of Aston Villa in a pre-season friendly.

An agreement was struck to stage a friendly between the two teams when Jordan Bowery was sold by the Spireites to Villa in 2012.

It will take place on July 30 (KO 7.45pm) at the Proact Stadium and is the only pre-season fixture confirmed so far for the Spireites.
