Chesterfield will host Championship and League One opposition at the Proact this summer and visit three local non-league sides.

Sheffield United and Rotherham United will be the visitors to take on Gary Caldwell’s new-look Town side, on 18th and 25th July respectively.

Caldwell will also send teams to Sheffield FC, Matlock Town and Buxton.

They visit the Coach and Horses ground in Dronfield to take on the world’s oldest club on 4th July, two days before the trip to Matlock Town.

Chesterfield will contest the GF Tomlinson Group Cup at Buxton the following night.
