Billy Beresford has joined Chesterfield on a non-contract basis and will be in the match day squad for the Spireites’ trip to Gillingham tomorrow (Saturday).

The young midfielder was a scholar at Scunthorpe United, spent time on loan at Sheffield Wednesday and impressed Chesterfield boss Paul Cook whilst training with the club of late.

The 18-year-old is the son of former Newcastle United and Southampton star John Beresford. His grandfather, also called John Beresford, played for the Spireites during the 1960s.
