Defender agrees contract extension

Jamie Grimes has agreed a contract extension which ties him to the club until the end of the 2023/24 season.

Commenting on his new deal, Grimes said: “I’m absolutely delighted. I’ve loved this club since I’ve come here. I’ve been welcomed by everyone involved – the staff and fans.

“It wasn’t a decision – it was ‘give me the contract and I’ll sign it’. I’m a very happy footballer and it’s a great place to be.”

The central defender, who also captains the team, joined Chesterfield in the summer of last year.

It is an early birthday present for Grimes, who celebrates his 32nd birthday tomorrow.
