Coleman hopeful of Grimes stay

20 August 2012

John Coleman is confident striker Ashley Grimes will stay with Rochdale despite Crawley making an approach for the player.

Grimes has started both Dale's opening fixtures this term after the 25-year-old netted 11 goals in 42 appearances last season.

"I spoke to Ashley and I told him I didn't want him to go," Spotland boss Coleman told BBC Radio Manchester.

"He told me he was happy at Rochdale, he loves the style of football we're playing and he's relishing the chance of being successful here."
