The World Cup might still be in full swing but preparations for next season begin in earnest this weekend.

Chesterfield kick off this summer’s round of pre-season friendlies tomorrow with a trip into the heart of the Peak District to face Evo-Stick Northern League Premier Division side Buxton - just 63 days after the final regular day of last season.

The friendly action heats up a week later on July 12 with the Spireites being joined by Sheffield Wednesday, Doncaster Rovers, Rotherham and Barnsley in action.
