'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A Young Chesterfield XI Outclass Holbrook.

The starting line-up for the Spireites: O'Donnell, Wafula, Waddle, Scully, Broadhead, Edridge, Fereday, Hewitt, Partridge, Hazel, Noel. The senior players were O'Donnell, Waddle, Wafula, Broadhead and Hazel, the rest were made up of Youth team players.

Scully playing in the centre was influential in midfield, spreading the ball out to the wings, so it was fitting when he scored the opening goal, a scorcher from distance.

Waddle playing at left back was playing the best football I've ever seen him play for the Spireites, , he played a lovely long ball to hazel, down the left wing. He later played what could be only described has a 9 iron pass, lofting the ball across the centre of midfield to Wafula.

Fereday who was making some lovely runs into the box from midfield, hit the cross bar and moments later forced a save from their keeper.

Wafula playing at Right back was looking comfortable on the ball and producing some neat touches, he picked the ball up on the right after about 20 or so passes from the team. He ran down the wing and then produced a lovely finish, to cap off a lovely move from the Spireites.

The Spireites went in at half-time 2-0 up. Although Holbrook were unlucky not to have had a penalty, everyone in the stadium felt it was a penalty apart from the officials. At one point the ball went over the touchline near the dugouts, it must have been a yard over, the linesman didn't notice, I don't think it's glasses he needed I think it was eyes.

H.T. 2-0.

Spireites were guilty of missing a lot of chances in the second half, although they restricted Holbrook to very little, the only shot they had on goal they scored, Mitchell scored with a powerful header that went in off the bar.

F.T. 2-1.

Some stand out performances from Noel, Wafula, Waddle, Fereday, Scully and Broadhead.
Broadhead who was Captain looked so comfortable at Centre Back and showed great composure and looks a real prospect for the future. He definitely showed why Cook gave him a long term contract.

At times they played some lovely neat football, you can see Cooks influence all the way down the squad. It was great that they didn't flood the team with first team players. It shows that they have faith in the young players. By giving them this responsibility they can only improve has players.

I could have stayed in and watched Arsenal, I am glad I braved the cold because after seeing that performance I realise we have some great prospects for the future. It was a good turn out and enjoyed by about 3-400 fans.
