Spireites land young forward

The Spireites have clinched the signing of James Berry from Macclesfield, subject to National League and FA approval.

The 22-year-old forward, who started out at Hull City, arrives on a three-year deal after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.

Berry said: “I’m over the moon. I’ve spoken to the gaffer and Danny Webb and I’m really excited to get going.

“It’s a massive club. As soon as I heard the interest, I was really looking forward to coming here and getting going.

“Now I’m here, I can’t wait to get on the pitch and entertain everyone and work as hard as I can for this football club.”

Berry scored 26 goals in 35 appearances last season. He was previously a scholar at Wigan Athletic after being released by Liverpool.
