Ebbsfleet United’s recruitment continues this week with the capture of striker Reece Grant from National League side Dagenham & Redbridge.
The 25-year-old has certainly made a healthy start already at the Kuflink Stadium, having scored the two goals for the Daggers that proved the difference in their 3-1 win here last Saturday in a pre-season friendly.
The Greenwich-born forward began his career around west London representing clubs including Wealdstone, Hillingdon Borough and Uxbridge but it was a move to Essex that saw him attract the attention of clubs higher up the pyramid.Embed from Getty Images
In 2016/17 he scored 26 goals for Heybridge Swifts and his success continued at Braintree Town the following season where he helped fire The Iron to promotion to the National League, scoring for them in the play-off final.
Having scored 17 goals for Braintree, he was signed by Aldershot Town in autumn 2018/19, scoring eight goals in a short period of time and winning player of the month.
Dagenham paid an undisclosed fee last summer to bring Grant to Victoria Road on a two-year contract and he played against the Fleet here at the Kuflink Stadium on New Year’s Day… and of course did so again at the weekend where he struck these two winning goals [see below].
