Spireites sign up Bradley

Chesterfield have signed former Mansfield Town striker Shayne Bradley until the end of the season.
The 23-year-old, who is still recovering from an ankle injury that has sidelined him since March, has been on trial at Saltergate for the last three weeks after his contract was paid up by Mansfield at the end of October.

Bradley has impressed manager Dave Rushbury with his work ethic and determination and the Spireites boss believes the marksman will give Chesterfield "another forward dimension" when he returns to full fitness.

Bradley said: "I am grateful for the chance to resurrect my career after being dogged by a series of injuries.

"Everyone at Chesterfield has been really supportive and it looks like I am getting back to fitness so I am looking forward to getting some games.

"I hope to do really well for Chesterfield and score a few goals."

Rushbury said: "I saw him once for Mansfield reserves against our lads and I wanted to sign him.

"I tried speaking to [former Stags manager] Stuart Watkiss about arranging a loan move, but unfortunately he got injured.

"This was when I heard he'd been paid up by the club. I was pleasantly surprised from our point of view.

"Shayne's pleased we've given him the opportunity. He's still a bit tentative when it comes to mobility, but he's getting there."
