"I’m absolutely buzzing,” he explained. “There is not a place I’d rather be more at than Chesterfield.

“My first season probably was better than I was expecting. Played a lot more games than I imagined. Looking to do it again this year.

“It’s a big year for us and I think that we can do it. We’ve definitely been bringing in a lot of experience.”

He added: “I couldn’t wait to come back [to pre-season]. I’m looking forward to it; it will be tough, but we’ve got to get it done.”

Chesterfield are in action on Tuesday night in a friendly against Matlock Town.
