He said: “I’m very excited and happy to be here. I can’t wait to get going. It starts with a big game tomorrow.”

McCallum leaves the Daggers after they signed Inih Effiong from Aldershot Town.

The Spireites have been searching for a striker following the departure of Kabongo Tshimanga to Peterborough United.

As well as Tshimanga, Town have not been able to call upon fellow forwards Danny Rowe and Akwasi Asante.
