Grimsby Town have signed Chesterfield defender Alex Whitmore for an undisclosed fee on a one-year deal.

The 22-year-old previously worked with Mariners boss Michael Jolley when he was in charge of Burnley's Under-23s.

Whitmore joined the Spireites on a two-and-a-half-year deal in January and scored once in 16 games.

"Knowing Alex as I do, I certainly believe that he can be an important player for us moving forward," Jolley told the club website.
