Grimmer: 'It's been a whirlwind!'

Defender reflects on historic win

14 July 2020

“I woke up this morning still pinching myself…the whole thing seems like a daze almost. It’s been a whirlwind.”

Chairboys hero Jack Grimmer echoed the thoughts of many Blues fans on Tuesday morning, as he spoke to BBC Sport Scotland to reflect on an historic night at Wembley Stadium.

“The whole playoffs in general have been a whirlwind,” said the 26-year-old.

“To wake up with that medal around my neck made it all worth it, that’s for sure.”

Grimmer caught the eye on the big stage with a typically energetic performance at right back and was bursting with pride at being part of the ultimate underdog story.

“It’s genuinely the classic football fairy tale. I think that’s why we’ve created so much noise down in England, people have been looking like, ‘What’s going on at that club?’ and I think it’s because we do things so differently. We’ve got a manager that doesn’t fit the stereotype of a manager these days, and we’ve got players that don’t do that either.

“The manager took the club from the brink of relegation out of the Football League five years ago and saved them on that day, and now he finds himself in the Championship. For me, personally, it was such a nice thing for these people who have been with the club for so long, on such a journey, on such a project, to help to push them over the line was definitely the cherry on top of a very nice cake!”
