In bringing in the talents of Jack Grimmer in January 2012, Fulham secured the services of one of Scottish football’s most promising young players.
Having made his Aberdeen first team debut aged just 16, the player has long been tipped to have a bright future in the game. The Scotland youth international chose to continue his development south of the border, and having impressed for both our Under-18s and Development Squad in 2011/12, he continued to improve the following season.
One of Kit Symons' most important and consistent players, Grimmer was a stand-out performer for the Under-21s during 2012/13 and was rewarded with a place on the First Team bench for our FA Cup with Budweiser tie at Blackpool. He also captained our Under-19 side to Dallas Cup glory in March.
In January 2014, Grimmer joined Port Vale on a one-month loan deal, which was later extended to run until the end of the season. However, Fulham opted to recall him in late March.
He was back out on loan in mid-October, joined Shrewsbury Town on a one-month deal. After impressing, this was later extended but he was soon called back by his parent club, and handed a debut later that week against Brighton & Hove Albion, with the youngster helping the Whites to a 2-1 win at the Amex Stadium. It was the first of 17 appearances he'd make for Fulham that season.
He was dealt a cruel blow early on in 2015/16, when he suffered a nasty injury in his first run-out at Wycombe Wanderers in the Capital One Cup. Following his return to fitness, he re-joined Shrewsbury on loan in January for the remainder of the campaign, and then went on to do likewise for the rest of the 2016/17 campaign.
