Grimmer excited for season opener

New arrival eager to start the season after signing from Coventry City.

26 July 2019

New signing Jack Grimmer expressed his excitement ahead of the upcoming campaign following his arrival at Adams Park.

The 25-year-old made the move from League One counterparts Coventry City earlier this week and joins the Chairboys after two successful years at the Ricoh Arena which included an FA Cup upset and dramatic play-off final victory over Exeter City.

A key player for Scotland’s youth teams during the early stages of his career, the former Aberdeen man arrives in South Buckinghamshire with a wealth of experience in the Football League – and seemed eager to get the season underway.

“Some of the runs we have through October and November there are a cluster of teams who are going to be fighting for promotion.

“The games at the start of the season look tough – but it’s only when you get into games that you start to understand whether games are winnable.

“I’ve played against this team many times and it’s always a tough game. I think this season with the players we have got and the experience that is already here, we can be a match for anyone.

“Right from the minute I walked through the door everyone couldn’t have been more welcoming. A lot of the boys say the changing room is one of the best they’ve been in, so that made it an exciting prospect for me coming here.”

He added: “You always want to come in and make an impression, on and off the field. There’s a good, well-knit group here, and I think that’s a compliment that he phoned me and thought I could add to that.

“I think in this day and age you need attacking full-backs. The gaffer said before I came in that he wanted me to attack as well which is needed in today’s game. We’re normally the ones who contribute to the most crosses and especially with the strikers here I’m hoping to get a few more assists.

“I don’t score many goals, but when I do they are important ones. Hopefully I can continue doing that here. Whether that is in the cup or the league, as long as it helps us win games. That’s the most important thing.”
