Oldaker signs contract extension

Midfielder Darren Oldaker has signed a contract extension with the club, committing himself to the Spireites until the summer of 2025.

Oldaker, who signed from fellow National League club Dorking Wanderers in 2022, has played 46 times whilst scoring four goals.

On his new contract, Oldaker said: “I’m absolutely buzzing. There is not a place I’d rather be at more than Chesterfield.

“My first season probably was better than I was expecting. Played a lot more games than I imagined. Looking to do it again this year.

“It’s a big year for us and I think that we can do it. We’ve definitely been bringing in a lot of experience.

“I couldn’t wait to come back [to pre-season]. I’m looking forward to it; it will be tough, but we’ve got to get it done.”

Oldaker will be in-line for his first appearance since his contract extension tonight away at Matlock Town.
