Young defender leaves Chesterfied and signs for Northern Premier League club

One of the youngsters who played for Chesterfield in the FA Trophy this season has signed for a new club.

Ryley D’Sena started both trophy games against Southport and Welling United this season and got good reviews in both fixtures.

The 20-year-old has also had some experience of first-team men’s football at Stocksbridge Park Steels in the Northern Premier League East Division.

The Aussie centre-back’s CV also includes spells at Larne and Bangor in Northern Ireland.

Bradford Park Avenue, of the Northern Premier League, whose manager is former Spireite Danny Whitaker, say the defender has now signed for them until the end of the season after leaving Chesterfield by ‘mutual agreement.’

D’Sena was named on the bench for Park Avenue’s 2-0 away win at Workington on Saturday, a result that leaves them fourth from bottom and four points from safety.

D’Sena’s next opportunity to make his debut will be against Ashton United this Saturday.

Paul Cook has dismissed claims that Chesterfield have the biggest budget in the National League.

The Spireites are 23 points clear at the top of the table and are closing in on ending their six-year stay in the fifth-tier in stunning style.

Town could break a number of club and league records between now and the end of the season, but some people have tried to pour cold water on their success.

Although the Blues do have one of the highest budgets in the division, Cook is adamant that they do not top that particular league. He points to the fact that Chesterfield do not have a big squad compared to others, something he has never been keen on.
