"They told me that Chesterfield is a great club with amazing people," he said.

"I had good communication and a good feeling with the manager at Oldham so it was an easy decision for me. He gives me confidence and helps me to be a better player.”

Nepomuceno signed for the Latics in September 2017 and scored six goals in 49 appearances last season.

Gevaro was born in Curacao and raised in the Netherlands.

His previous clubs include FC Den Bosch and Fortuna Sittard in Holland before stints in Romania and Portugal.

The Spireites recorded their first win of the season against Torquay United last weekend and travel to Sutton United this Saturday.

Spireites boss Sheridan has had a quick, left-sided player on his wanted list for a while.

Speaking at a press conference last Friday, he said: "He (Nepomuceno) is a player I know who I had at Oldham and there are other players I have asked about who are left-sided players.

"I feel as though we need someone with a bit of pace who can play down that side of the pitch."
