Jack Grimmer On Colchester United Clash

26 February 2016

Defender Wants To Keep Up Good Record



“Playing Colchester, who are bottom of the league, is anything, you don’t want complacency,” said the defender.

“Especially coming off of a few good results and performances before Manchester United so I’m determined, and all of us as a team, will be determined come Saturday.”

Finally, Grimmer assured the fans that there will be no room for complacency in the game against Colchester this Saturday.

“I think it is good that now it is our turn to play and we can focus on the league,” said Jack.

“The magic of the cup has gone for this season and it will be good to get back and focus on every three points.”

And he thinks that now the cup ‘magic’ has gone from this season, it will give the side the push that they needed to continue their pursuit in the league.

“I think because teams who play them will always look at their league position and their form and think that it will be a banana skin,” said Grimmer.

“They will know that themselves and it will make them even more determined to get results and try and make something of their season.”

He thought that this fixture, even more than the United result could be a ‘banana skin’ fixture for the Shrews this season.

“I am still hurt from how the (Manchester) United match went,” said the defender.

“I didn’t foresee that kind of game coming around so that is why I am happy that Colchester is relatively soon and we can go out there and make things right in the league.

“We take no pity on them and we want to go there and it is a massive match for us.”

He also thinks that it is a good thing that they are playing this game so close to their recent fixture against Manchester United.

“I’ve actually done quite well against them over the years,” said Grimmer.

“I played them in a pre-season fixture, and we won.

“I also played them in my first return game after my ankle injury for the under-21s so hopefully I can continue that and keep a healthy record against them.”

And Jack thinks that it is a good omen that he has already faced Colchester this season in a pre-season friendly for Fulham.

Defender Jack Grimmer is looking to keep up his good record against Colchester United when Shrewsbury Town visit the Weston Homes Community Stadium on Saturday.
