Chesterfield's new assistant manager Glynn Snodin says he is delighted to have taken up his new role at the Proact after spending six months out of the game.
He's been hired as part of John Sheridan's new management team, as the club look to steer clear of the National League relegation zone.
Snodin told Peak FM: "Football is my life. It's like a drug to me. This was the first pre-season I've missed since I was 16 years of age, either at a player, coach or manager.
"Once John gave me the call I didn't hesitate because I know him and because it's a good club. No matter where they are in the league we'll fight and get this challenge up so it was a yes straight away."
Sheridan and Snodin's first game in the Proact Stadium dugout will be this weekend when the Spireites take on Bedford Town in the FA Trophy.
