Just 4 seasons ago Chesterfield reached the League 1 playoffs after just getting promotion the season before.

Since then, the club has been on a downward spiral and find themselves in the National League for the first time in their history. With a new stadium, funds are never high. The new squad has an average age of 26. The youngest as standard 18 and the eldest... 38. There is a real range of players available.

It won't be easy to bounce straight back. This is my aim. With battles against the giants such as Salford and Leyton Orient. It won’t be easy. With a media prediction of 3rd but also only 1 automatic promotion spot.

KEY PLAYERS:
Laurence Maguire - DC
Younger brother to Leicester Cit player, Harry. A young up and coming defender who came through the ranks. 21 year old with a 4 star potential. Definitely one i will playing and looking to improve where possible.

Joe Rowley - MC
Again another young prospect to come through the ranks. This time a 19 year old creative midfielder. as standard suited to central midfielder but i will be using as my advanced playmaker. currently a 4 and half star player, should be at a higher level definitely 1 to keep happy and try to tie down to a longer deal.

Charlie Wakefield - MR
A 3rd young player to come through the Academy, an 18 year old winger. Not very fast or strong however, his technical ability makes him a good option to retrain as central playmaker. only has 1 year left on his deal will need a new one soon as he has a very high potential also.

Lee Shaw - ST
A new signing this season. 24 year old work horse. simple as that, work rate of 15 and determination of 14 makes him the ideal pressing forward. Works best when partnered with a strong Target man to play off.

It's clear that the academy produces good quality players, i like to use youth where possible especially cup games. So i will be looking to develop existing talent and find new young prospects.

STAFF:
As i have replaced Martin Allen, who has very few staff. That will be early on my agenda, a fitness coach, scouts and a larger medical team. The games come thick and fast in this league, will need all the help i can get.

TRANSFERS:
As the budget is very low, but i already have enough players i believe to compete, i won't be adding to the existing squad straight away. After all, the transfer window never shuts in non league.
This is FM Scout, have a look at the story section and you'll see there is plenty of interest - regardless of the team, level or country! :D

A slight issue with your post though, a few teams have immediately won promotion back to the Football League, those being Bristol Rovers and Cheltenham Town. But, on the whole, it is an incredibly difficult league to get out of, especially at the moment with the amount of quality within it.

Looking forward to potentially seeing a few posts here soon!

sorry, I’m a chesterfield fan and rumours were that nobody has. My mistake, hopefully I can be the first chesterfield boss to bounce straight back
Pre Season:

I always like to manage the first pre season get to know my team then after that i delegate to my assistant. I do always pick the line ups though.

Queen of the south 1-1 D

Crystal Palace U23 4-1 W

Histon 3-1 W

Merthy 1-0 W

Sheffield FC 4-2 W

Matlock 4-2 W

Hereford 1-1 D

With there being almost 0 funds available to sign players, this was a chance to try a few trialists and find my best academy players. i didn't manage to find any Trialists worth keeping so stuck with what i had. Promoting to Academy players, Charlie Wakefield(MC) and Ify Ofoegbu (DR) to the first team giving me more depth.
A good start and pre-season will have you ready for the new campaign!

Chesterfield belong in the professional leagues of English football, I am confident you can be the man to bring them back up!
A good pre-season campaign, albeit against mainly weaker opposition. Get the club back in the Football League, where they belong.
My name is Ramiro Mbyo, I am from Angola, Africa ...
I was touched by the history of the Chesterfield club and decided to do the same, fight against all the strongest results:
First season: Vanarama Champion
Second season: League two champion
Third season: League one champion
Fourth season: Championship Champion
I'm currently in the Premier League:
Match day 5: 18th place
When the season is over I'll be back here to bring news:
I advance since:
1. the club was purchased in the third season;
2. Widened the stadium at this time (+2,745 seats)
3. Wakefield continues as a holder and has developed a lot;
4. Joe Rowley had to sell it at the Championship.

Any tips you need give me a touch ...
