Grimsby Town signs defender Rollin Menayese

Grimsby Town FC announced the signing of defender Rollin Menayese on loan from Mansfield Town until the end of the season.


Paul Hurst’s second signing of the winter is 6’3’’, 23 year old Menayese

Menayese began his career at Cardiff City progressing through the Academy system before signing for Weston-super-Mare.

The skilled defender went on to impress and secure a move to Sky Bet League One side Bristol Rovers.

In January 2018, Menayese joined Swindon Town on loan for the second half of the season where he went on to make a total of 14 appearances. 

He helped to secure a 9th place finish in Sky Bet League Two.

After a contract extension at Rovers in the summer of 2020, Mansfield Town secured the signature of Menayese, where he has gone onto make 14 appearances in all competitions scoring twice.

The defender said: “I think it’s the right time for me because I really want to push myself, I want to keep on improving and hopefully we can get some wins.”

“I have spoken to a few players about Paul Hurst, some of the boys at my club have worked with him and I spoke to Benno [Kyle Bennett] as well and he had good positive words to say so I was very excited to come here.”
