Burrow strikes in win at Staveley


Staveley MW 1, Chesterfield 2

Chesterfield made it three pre-season wins on the trot when they returned home from Inkersall Road with a 2-1 triumph.

The Spireites goals came in either half and John Sheridan’s men took a 40th minute lead when an unnamed player on trial headed in a cross from Dean Morgan.

Jordan Burrow, who has stepped up to the Blues pro ranks from the youth team, added Chesterfield’s second when he pounced on a loose ball after Jacob Hazell’s shot had been saved but not held by the Staveley keeper.

The Welfare team refused to let their heads drop and pulled back a late goal through striker Ryan Damms.

Blowing the whistle was 2010 World Cup final and Champions League final referee Howard Webb who, as president of the Baris Northern Counties East League, was officiating to raise cash for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Chesterfield fans who travelled to Staveley were able to see players wearing the new away strip - a predominantly white shirt with a vertical blue pinstripe - which is now on sale at the B2net Stadium.

On Saturday Chesterfield are on the road again when they travel into Cheshire to play League Two side Macclesfield Town.
