Christopher Lee Clements (born 6 February 1990) is an English footballer who plays as a midfielder for League Two side Grimsby Town.

Career[edit]

Clements began his career with Crewe Alexandra as a member of the club's renowned academy. His career debut came in a loan spell at Nantwich Town in 2008. Following this loan, Clements was sent out on loan to Leigh Genesis during the 2008–09 season, and also to Stafford Rangers, before signing his first professional contract with Crewe.[2] Having signed his first contract, in 2009 Clements was loaned out once more, this time alongside AJ Leitch-Smith, to Icelandic club ÍBV, before returning to England early due to an injury crisis at his parent club.[3][4]

Clements made his debut for Crewe on 7 November 2009, in a 3–2 FA Cup first round defeat away at Conference National side York City; starting on the substitutes' bench, he replaced James Bailey in the 90th minute.[5] This proved to be Clements' only appearance for Crewe; at the end of the 2009–10 season, when his contract expired, he was released by the club.

In the summer of 2010, Clements joined Hednesford Town; he had a two-season stint at the club. He picked up the young player of the year award at the end of the 2011–12 season at the Northern Premier League's annual event.[6]

Mansfield Town[edit]

Clements played as a trialist for Burnley's reserve side in a 3–1 win over Tranmere Rovers on 30 April 2012.[7] In spite of the trial being unsuccessful, Clements was signed by Mansfield Town at the beginning of June 2012.[8] After helping the Stags to the 2011–12 Conference National title, Clements was awarded a new contract at the club for 2013–14.

Grimsby Town[edit]

On 18 January 2017, Clements signed an 18-month contract with newly promoted League Two side Grimsby Town.[9]
