Swindon Town are delighted to announce Anthony Grant has signed a one-year contract extension, keeping him at the club until June 2021.
Grant played a pivotal role in the heart of midfield during the League Two winning season, making 30 appearances for the club. His performances also helped him win the club’s Adver player of the year award, receiving 50% of the fans’ votes.
The 33-year-old started his career as a trainee with Chelsea and has represented England at under-16 to under-19 level. He made his professional debut coming on as a 90th-minute substitute for Chelsea in a 3-1 win over Manchester United in 2005. He then went on to have spells with Southend, Crewe and Port Vale to name a few.
In September 2019, Anthony signed for the Robins on an initial four-month loan deal, making his full league debut in a 3-0 win against Macclesfield. In January of this year, he made the deal permanent which kept him in SN1 until the end of the 2019/20 season.
His ‘no nonsense’ style of play has made him a fan favourite at the County Ground, and we are delighted that he wants to extend his journey with us for another year.
Upon signing his contract extension, Grant said:
“I’m excited, it’s been a few weeks but the gaffer knew that he had my word and now I’ve signed.”
“I was always going to come back. I’ve had some time to relax, spent some time with the family, so there were other elements, but I was always coming back. The fans have been patient, the management team have been patient, and I’m happy I’ve come through the door again.”
