Chesterfield have completed the loan signing of Sheffield United defender Jake Bennett.

The Spireites are currently embroiled in a winless run that has seen them slip to 20th in the Vanarama National League, just two points above the relegation zone. Manager Martin Allen announced the signing in this statement on the club’s website:

Good morning.

Today we have signed Jake Bennett from Sheffield United on loan until the end of the season. He’s a solid, reliable right-back and he’ll go straight into the squad for our game at Halifax on Saturday.

I do hope you are all keeping well and I’m sure you all understand why I’ve gone a bit quiet and just focused on improving all aspects of our training, management and organisation. Soon, the old dog will be barking again!

Take care,
