Chapman had a disappointing time at Grimsby Town in 2000-01.

He managed just two senior appearances from the subs' bench as new boss Lennie Lawrence opted for experience in the back line and missed the last few weeks of the season after being sent off in a reserve game and then suffering a shoulder injury.

A hard-tackling left back he was made available on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Chapman moved on to League new boys Boston United.

His contract at York Street was extended up to June 2004 in February 2003.
