Gavin Grant Player Profile
Debut: Aldershot Town (A, 1-3), 17/02/2008
Signed on loan by Peter Taylor shortly after taking charge at Broadhall Way, Gavin Grant arrived from Millwall on loan and immediately made an impression. Playing either up front or wide on the right, Grant started as he meant to go on – a goal on debut in a 3-1 reverse at Aldershot in front of the Setanta cameras.
He went on and made an impressive return of seven goals in twelve starts (and two substitute appearances). Despite such a great statistic, it wasn’t enough to help Stevenage Borough into the 2008 playoffs and he returned to the New Den as his loan deal concluded.
Following his loan stint at Broadhall Way, he was allowed to leave Millwall and was reunited with Peter Taylor at his new managerial post at Wycombe Wanderers. Grant followed Taylor yet again onto Bradford City, but his football career was abruptly terminated in 2010, when he was sentenced to life in jail for his part in a 2004 murder.
