Popular defender returns to Town on loan
Jack Grimmer has returned to Town after signing on loan from Fulham until the end of the season.
The Scottish right-back spent time with Town early on in Micky Mellon's first season in charge and was a big hit. He fitted in well to the Town defence and showed what an exiting player he can be.
He returned to Fulham and picked up an injury which kept him out of action for a while but he's fully fit now and looking to get back into the Town line-up.
The news is a boost for Town and the manager who has been a fan of Grimmer for a long time;”Everyone knows what type of player Jack is and I keep saying about the need to get League 1 ready players and Jack is a Championship player.
“He is a player with pace and with power and no end of ability.
“He is well known to the fans and I'm sure they will be happy to see a player like Jack coming into the group.
“We've seen what it's like in the first half of the season and we need to get that type of player into the building.
“The opportunity to get in Jack in is one that we have worked hard on to make happen and we are grateful to be able to get Jack and Larnell from Fulham.”
The Town manager has always been a fan of full-backs who can offer something going forward and Grimmer perfectly fits that bill;”I want my full backs to be able to get forward and quickly go and support the wide players.
“Jack has all the attributes to do that but he's also a very good player who can play a number of positions if needed.
“He's full of power and pace and we have seen the importance of that in this division is a must to make any impact.
“We need to try and get as much of that in the team as possible in the coming weeks.
“Add that to what we've already got it will give us an exciting team that plays with the power and pace needed to get results.”
Jack is cleared to play in the Emirates FA Cup game at Cardiff City this Sunday evening.
