Grimsby Town

Grimsby have signed Derby striker Charles Vernam on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old, who played under Town boss Russell Slade while on loan at Coventry last term, could make his debut against Newport on Saturday.

Vernam told the club’s official website: “I’m a local lad, I know what this club means to a lot of people so I’m hoping I can prove myself and show the fans that I’m good enough to play at this level.”
