Jamie Grimes set to sign for the Robins

18 May 2017

Second signing of the week

We are very pleased to announce that defender Jamie Grimes is set to sign for the Robins.

Jamie, who was captain of National League side Dover last season, will officially join the club on July 1st on a one-year deal after his contract in Dover ends. 

This is our second signing of the summer, after the announcement of Kevin Dawson's deal yesterday.

The Gaffer Gary Johnson commented, "I'm very pleased to have secured Jamie's services after several attempts to sign him last season, which didn't happen due to a transfer fee needing to be paid and Dover taking up an option on his contract.

"He comes well recommended from players at our club who have played with him and staff who have worked with him." Having played in Swansea's academy, Jamie moved to then National League side Kidderminster where he played with Kyle Storer and Danny Wright, as well as working with Senior Sports Therapist Gavin Crowe.

"He's a very good defender with good experience, a centre half that is very tall, very strong and is another leader for our squad" added Johnson.

Having signed for Dover in 2015, he has gone on to make over 75 first team appearances, helping guide the south-coast side to the play-off semi finals in his first year.

We'll have reaction from Jamie himself later today.
