Hollis looking forward to new season

Haydn Hollis is looking forward to the start of the new season after re-signing for the Spireites.

Interviewed during a visit to long-term club sponsor Leengate Valves, Hollis said: “I don’t want to get expectations too high and put unnecessary pressure on us and the manager, but looking at what we’ve got and everyone’s really sharp, I’m hoping for a really good season. I really hope we’re up there.

“I usually absolutely hate pre-season but I’ve enjoyed every minute of being back. The lads seem really fit and we seem to have got a good group coming together. I’ve really enjoyed being back.”

Leigh Pickering, commercial director of Leengate Valves, was pleased to welcome Haydn to the company’s headquarters in Somercotes. He said: “It’s nice to get somebody over here to see what we do.

“We’ve been open all the way through lockdown. We can’t close because if hospitals or factories need something quickly, we’ve got to be there to supply those goods for next day.”
