Forward Romuald Boco was a named substitute for a Chesterfield FC X1 that played at Staveley Miners Welfare on Monday night.

The former Plymouth Argyle man has been training with the Spireites this summer and featured consistently throughout pre-season.

He started at Matlock Town and was used as an early substitute against Alfreton Town when he came on for the injured Jay O’Shea.

The 29-year-old played the full 90 minutes against Lincoln City but wasn’t in the squad for Saturday’s draw with Leeds United.

Boco was instead named in Bristol Rovers’ starting line up to face Gloucester on the same afternoon at Whaddon Road.

He again played the full 90 minutes but Rovers are not thought to be in a position to offer him personal terms.

But he featured for Chesterfield from the bench at Inkersall Road against a Staveley side who ran out 4-3 winners, largely thanks to a Ryan Damms hat-trick.

Nathan Forbes broke the deadlock for the hosts before Damms took centre stage for Staveley against a predominantly youthful Spireites X1.

Ritchie Humphreys, at 36, was the obvious exception and he captained Chesterfield who found the net through Charlie Raglan, Lewis Sugden and Mason Coy.
