Wycombe defender Jack Grimmer has praised the attitude and performances of centre back Chris Forino.

Forino, who joined the club on a free transfer in the spring, has played six times for the first team and has scored one goal for the Chairboys, which came in the 2-2 draw away at Hartlepool United.

He made his league debut in the victory over Burton Albion 2-1 on December 7 where he was awarded as the Man of the Match.

The 21-year-old has since made league outings in the 1-0 away loss at Ipswich and the 1-0 away win at Charlton.

Speaking after the victory at the Valley on New Year’s Day, Grimmer said: “He’s come in and has been a great character around the place like all the young boys.

“First and foremost, the club looks at characters ahead of ability and I think that whole changing room is hungry, and I am sure he will not be the only one that will come through in the seasons to come.

“He is the next one following up in Anis’ footsteps and his story is incredible.

“He seems to take everything in his stride, and he doesn’t take anything for granted.

“He wants to learn and I think playing alongside Anthony [Stewart], JJ [Jacobson], Taf [Tafazolli], others and myself will help him learn more and it is a great club to be at and progress.”

The Scotsman has also revealed how playing alongside the youngster is currently helping him in his career.

Grimmer, who is in his third season with the club, has admitted that aiding a player of Forino’s quality is an important aspect to his game, as he hopes the 21-year-old can continue to flourish as the season progresses.

He continued: “I think it’s a step forward in my career in how I can help the younger players around me.

“Since Chris has come in, he has done well, but, at the same time, it keeps my mind switched on as I’m talking to him throughout the game.

“It’s a good partnership that is working.

“Even though it didn’t work at Ipswich, I told him it was a learning curve as he didn’t put a foot wrong.

“He is in a good place, but like with any young player, they need time.”
