Frickley ended up drawing the game 1-1.
Rotherham swooped to sign the youngster over the summer on a free transfer.
He has since been their third choice ‘keeper behind Viktor Johansson and Josh Vickers.
However, Paul Warne has now let him go and get some first-team experience under his belt.
Career to date
Chapman rose up through the academy at Sheffield United and was a regular for the Blades at various youth levels over recent years.
He never made a senior appearance for the Blades though and they decided to release him at the end of last season.
The stopper subsequently became a free agent but was swiftly handed a move to fellow Yorkshire side Rotherham.
New temporary home
Frickley play their football in the Northern Premier League and are currently 12th in the league, seven points off the Play-Offs.
They have a couple of ex-Football League players in their ranks such as Martyn Woolford and Gary King.
Chapman’s parent club Rotherham are through to the third round of the FA Cup as they beat Stockport County 1-0 at home on Friday night.
