Manager on new arrivals

The Spireites made two new loan signings this week with midfielder Jack Clarke joining from Premier League side Aston Villa and striker Marcus Dinanga arriving from League Two outfit Stevenage.

James Rowe described Clarke as an “outstanding technical player”.

Commenting on plans for Clarke’s development, the Spireites boss added: “He needs some confidence and a run of games somewhere where he can be loved in an adult environment, in a first team environment.

“That’s what we’re going to give him, we’re going to give him that platform.”

Rowe will be hoping that Clarke will be able to add depth to his midfield options and provide further competition for places.

Dinanga, meanwhile, made his Spireites debut in the 2-1 defeat away to Solihull Moors after coming on as a substitute for the final 31 minutes of the game.

During his brief cameo, Dinanga showed lots of positive attributes Rowe saying: “Marcus obviously scored a lot of goals before his move to Stevenage; he hasn’t quite got the game time he wanted in his set position as a nine.

“That’s his main position, he’s been playing mainly wide so he’ll come in. I think that he has shown there he’s good in the air, he’s mobile, he worked hard for the team.”

Settling into the area should not be too much of an issue for Dinanga having had a spell at Derbyshire club Matlock Town during the 2016/17 season.
