FORMER Chesterfield Keeper Greg Fleming has agreed to join the Mariners on a one-year deal.
The Scot played the full ninety minutes of the recent friendly game against Hull City and impressed the Town management with his performance.
And Rob Scott was delighted to get the stopper on board.
He said: “Greg’s agreed to join us, I don’t like to say that until the ink is dry though.
“We’ve got clarification today that he wants to come in. Baring any disasters he will be in the football club as of Thursday.
“We’re are extremely happy with that because we thought he came into the game on Friday and did very well.
“I thought his performance was commanding, it was a good kicking display and he showed some excellent handling. His talking around the box was excellent aswell.
“James McKeown proved against tonight what a great goalkeeper he is. For twenty three he is a great keeper and is gong to go a long way in the game. Bringing Greg into the frame will push him – likewise |Greg will push him.”
Twenty-five-year-old Fleming was born in Dunfermline, Scotland and started his career at Livingston. He went on to play for Gretna, Oldham Athletic and Galway United in Ireland before signing for Chesterfield in 2011.
The former Scottish youth international was released in May after not being offered a new deal.
