AFC Mansfield are pleased to announce the signing of Jimmy Ghaichem from Scarborough Athletic.  Jimmy will go into the squad for the game against Shirebrook Town on Tuesday night.

Speaking to Jimmy he had this to say about his move to AFC Mansfield.

 “Contrary to what has been said I have made the move to AFC Mansfield because I can see they are an ambitious club and look to be going places.  Having spoken to the Chairman Steve Hymas and Director Andy Saunders it was an easy decision to make.

Also the chance to work with manager Rudy Funk was fundamental in my decision, he is a great manager and has become a bit of a father figure to me.  He has helped me so much in my football and to link up again so quickly is pleasing.

AFC Mansfield have a great bunch of talented players, many of whom I have played with already and I can’t wait to get started.  We play Shirebrook Town on Tuesday night and it would be fantastic to play a part in getting 3 points and moving the club forward.

The club ambition matches my own and hopefully in the next couple of seasons we can push on and progress up the pyramid”.

Ghaichem is a winger who began his career as a trainee at Mansfield Town before turning professional in 2005, He then had a brief spell at Sheffield Wednesday before joining Peterborough United in 2006. He made three appearances for Peterborough in all competitions and had a loan spell at Rushden & Diamonds before being released at the end of the 2007–08 season.

Ghaichem made 36 appearances in the 2011-12 season, with his most memorable goal coming in a top of the table clash against Tadcaster Albion.
