Grimsby Town trialists Derek Niven and Lewis Chalmers aim to shine against Boro
GRIMSBY Town boss Rob Scott says he and Paul Hurst will use Wednesday's friendly against Grimsby Borough to run the rule over trialists Derek Niven and Lewis Chalmers.
Scott revealed that both midfielders have been training with the Mariners in the hope of earning a deal following their release from Chestefield and Macclesfield respectively.
Falkirk-born Niven, 28, made almost 300 league appearances for the Spireites, while 26-year-old Chalmers can count Oxford, Crawley, Aldershot and Altrincham among his list of former clubs.
Speaking to the Telegraph, Scott said that a decision on both players will be made after Wednesday's game.

"We've got a couple of lads on trial with us and they'll both play against Grimsby Borough," he said.
"There have been a lot of names flying about, but the two that we've got are Lewis Chalmers and Derek Niven.
"Derek has played a whole host of games for Chesterfield and captained the side. He's got bags of energy and likes to charge around and be a ball winner.
"They have been working hard in training throughout the week and have done well.
"Both of them play in midfield so we've got a decision to make on them after the game, but they're being kept in the loop as to what the situation is.
"Hopefully they will give us something to think about in the game.
"There could well be some more trialists come into the football club between now and the end of pre-season because there are a lot of players out of contract on the look out for new clubs at the minute."
