Joel Grant Moves to Home Park

Joel Grant has signed for League 1 outfit Plymouth Argyle, after declining Exeter’s offer of a contract.

The 29-year-old Jamaican international played 59 times for the Grecians starting in 36 games and scoring 9 times. He signed in August 2015 and was funded by supporters through the 1931 fund in his first season.

Uniquely for Exeter, he had a Panini card for being part of last year’s Jamaican Copa Americana squad.

He started his footballing career with Watford in 2004. He moved first on loan to Conference side Aldershot in 2006, then signed permanently with them. Crewe picked him up for £130k, and stayed with them for 3 seasons. Wycombe and Yeovil were next before Exeter signed him in 2015.

In total he has played 349 competitive games in his career, netting 57 goals.

Joel Grant said on his move

I’m still on the roster (for Jamaica) and that’s another reason for getting to the Championship, because you have international breaks.

It’s more to do with myself that I haven’t been involved of late because I felt it was only right to concentrate on trying to get Exeter promotion, but I still love to play for my country and I want to be involved.

Wherever you are, you always try to give your best for your team and, generally, you do get a bond. I am thankful for Exeter – I enjoyed my time there – and I’m about to start a new challenge, which I’m really looking forward to.
