Keeper joins Spireites

Ryan Boot is the latest addition to the squad ahead of the new season getting underway.

The 28-year-old keeper, who was previously at Solihull Moors, has signed a 12-month contract after a spell on trial.

On completing the deal, Boot said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be here – it’s such a great club to sign for.

“It’s brilliant. There’s a great feel factor around the place. Obviously last year, just fell short. Hopefully, we can go one better this year,”

The shot-stopper started his career at Port Vale and spent five years with the Valiants

During his stint at Vale Park, the 28-year-old spent time out on loan at Worcester City, Norton United, Newcastle Town and Macclesfield Town.

Boot joined National League side Solihull Moors in 2018 and he soon became a fans’ favourite.

In his five seasons in Birmingham, he made well over 200 appearances as Solihull established themselves as a top fifth-tier side.
