Chesterfield have taken midfielder Neale McDermott on trial.

The 24-year-old, son of Liverpool legend Terry, is a free agent after leaving Belgian Third Division outfit Royale Association Athletique Louvieroise at the end of last season.

He played half an hour, replacing Derek Niven after 60 minutes, of the Spireites 2-1 victory over Derby in the Derbyshire FA Centenary Cup on Saturday and is set to feature in Wednesday's pre-season friendly against Sheffield United at Saltergate.

"Neale came in and trained very hard and he did well when he came on," said boss John Sheridan.

"We will have another look at him on Wednesday night because I have made no secret of the fact I want to strengthen the squad with three more players, one of which is a midfielder."Í
