The 20-year-old came through the Chesterfield academy but was released in the summer.

The forward was in former manager John Pemberton’s plans at the start of last season, scoring twice in a 4-0 win against Woking.

But Rawson did not feature at all when James Rowe was appointed in November and was loaned out to Alfreton Town and then Bradford Park Avenue.
