Chesterfield Football Club will train at their new b2net Stadium for the first time this week.

The new 10,300 all-seater venue at Whittington Moor was officially handed over to the club last week.

Spireites manager John Sheridan is delighted with the new ground and said: "The pitch and stadium are beautiful. We just need to get used to it as quick as possible.

“I've told them the size of pitch I want and I think that is all sorted out now."

The club kick off their npower League 2 campaign at the b2net Stadium to Barnet on 7th August before hosting Middlesbrough in the Carling Cup only three days later.

Sheridan added: "I was pleased we got the first game at home and the cup game is a great draw. We will be playing against a very good team, one of the fancied teams in the Championship, so it is a real test for us."
