Swindon Town are delighted to announce the signing of Joel Grant on a one-year deal subject to EFL and FA approval.

The 33-year-old winger joins Town having trained with the squad for the last few weeks and impressing Richie Wellens.

Grant started his professional career at Watford back in 2005, where he spent two years at Vicarage Road under England U21’s manager Aidy Boothroyd.

The Acton-born forward then Joined Aldershot on loan, which was made permanent in 2007.

When Grant left the Shots in 2008, he had spells at Crewe Alexandra and Wycombe where he made 96 and 71 appearances respectively.

Joel signed for Yeovil Town in 2013, spending two seasons at Huish Park before making the trip south-westerly to Exeter City. He scored 8 goals in 46 appearances for the Grecians before deciding to join local rivals Plymouth Argyle in 2017.

Town fans will remember Grant for his late equaliser for Plymouth back in October in a 1-1 draw with the Pilgrims at the County Ground.

Joel has represented Jamaica at Under 20 and first-team level, with a combined 25 appearances and 9 goals.

Upon signing for Swindon, the winger said:

"I'm over the moon, bit later than I would have like to get sorted but I can't wait to get started."

"Training has been really good, the lads have all been welcoming - almost feels like I've been here for a while."

"It's a footballing club, a big club, one that has a great style of football which was important to me. I wanted to be part of a footballing team and definitely with a club like Swindon, who are looking to get as high as possible I feel like it's the right move."

We’d like to welcome Joel to the club and look forward to his involvement over the next 12-months.
