Chesterfield have offered professional contracts to three youth team players.

Striker Jordan Burrow, midfielder Ben Watkins and defender Matthew Needham will all have the opportunity to sign six-month deals starting next season.

Spireites youth team manager Dave Brently said: "Promotion into League One means the standard achieved by our scholars has to be even higher.

"The three lads now have the chance to catch manager John Sheridan's eye to secure a longer contract."
