Grimmer Joins On Loan

18 October 2014

Fulham defender arrives for one month

Shrewsbury Town can confirm the signing of Fulham defender Jack Grimmer on a one-month loan.

The 20-year-old, born in Aberdeen, Scotland, becomes manager Micky Mellon's second loan signing of October after Blackpool forward Bobby Grant.

Grimmer, who made his first-team debut for Aberdeen at just 16 years old, spent a month on loan at Sky Bet League One club Port Vale last season.

The youngster plays in the Cottagers' under-21s side this season and has also been capped for Scotland through each age group from 15s to 21s.

Speaking exclusively to Shrews Player, Grimmer insisted he must now fight for a place in Micky's starting line-up.

"I'm willing to fight for my place and hopefully, given a chance, I will be able to do that," he said.

"I am not expecting to come here and be a nailed-on certainty to start because that’s not how football works.

"Looking at the fixtures, there at least two games a week for the next few weeks, so there's plenty game time which I’ll hopefully be able to get."

Grimmer revealed he already knows a bit about Town and felt it was an easy decision to join the club for a month.

"I spoke to (Micky) and he is under the impression that I will fit in nicely to the way he wants to play," he said.

"I know a few of the players from previous clubs and I played against Shrewsbury last season when I was on loan at Port Vale.

"One of my friends, Fraser Fyvie, was on loan here last season so I had a few people I could talk to about the club.

"They all said good things and give it plenty of compliments so that really was a factor in making it an easy choice to come."
