New Glovers’ ‘keeper Grant Smith

Chesterfield Manager, James Rowe has been explaining his decision to let goalkeeper Grant Smith move to Yeovil Town.

In an interview with the Derbyshire Times, Rowe explains that he couldn’t offer Smith guaranteed football after the arrival of former Barnet (and Yeovil) ‘keeper Scott Loach.

“He wanted guaranteed first-team football and I was not prepared to give him that,” Rowe said. “For me, Grant started well but some mistakes crept in that cost us crucial goals and he came out of the team. He represented himself well in the team the first few months. For him to be guaranteed first-team football down at Yeovil, on a better wage than what he was currently on, we did not want to stand in his way.”

Smith has replaced his name sake Adam Smith as the Glovers’ first choice glove man this season after signing a one-year-deal in June.

Well, if you don’t want a keeper who kept 10 clean sheets in 18 games for you, we will more than happily take him off your hands!
