Blues inject some pace with capture of Joel Grant

Blues inject some pace with capture of Joel Grant


Wycombe Wanderers have captured the signature of Joel Grant who was released by Crewe Alexandra at the end of last season.

Grant can play either up-front or as a winger and scored 16 goals in 96 league appearances during his three years with the Railwaymen.

The 23 year-old started his career at Watford before moving to Aldershot Town where he won promotion from the Conference under current Wycombe manager Gary Waddock.

Crewe paid the Shots £130,000 for his signature in 2008.

A former Jamaican U20 international, Grant has signed a two-year contract with the Blues.

He told wwfc.com: "I had a few options but I feel Wycombe are the right club for me. I'm a player that likes to excite the crowd, use my skills and entertain."

Waddock said: "He'll bring a different dimension to the team and with JP leaving the club it was important we brought some pace to the frontline."
