After a difficult first few appearances for the club, Jack Grimmer has progressed into becoming one of the side’s most reliable performers – albeit with mistakes still in his game. At times, he can look positionally suspect and slightly naive as a defender, however he will also have games where very little gets past him. Going forward, Grimmer is useful to the extent that he stretches the play and is constantly an option in the attack, although his final ball tends to be pretty hit and miss. Nonetheless, he has generally been consistent and has shown flashes of being slightly more than that.
Given that Grimmer does have deficiencies in his game, Mark Robins needs to find a way to encourage him to make further improvements to round-off his game. Heading into a season where we’ll be up against better quality attackers, we’ll need Grimmer to defend more than he did in League Two which is going to provide a sterner inspection of his ability. While Grimmer looks an unassailable option in that right-back position heading into this season, if he doesn’t kick-on, he could be someone we would be looking to upgrade upon in the future.
