Bobby Grant says that he will reflect on fourth placed finish for the club in Sky Bet League One as a ‘great achievement’.

Grant – who was an ever present in Uwe Rosler’s side during the 2016/17 campaign, spoke to the club’s YouTube channel following the end of the season.

“The lads have earned a well-earned rest,” said Grant.

“For myself, personally to play 56/57 games throughout the season, and made my hundredth appearance on Sunday which I only found out today, I am proud of that and I hope for many more.

“I think for the group of players, and the club, to finish in that place in the league, fourth in League One, is a great achievement.

“I’m disappointed we couldn’t make it to Wembley but it’s football.”

Grant has been known as a striker and even a winger in his career to date, but featured mainly in midfield for Rosler’s side this season.

“When he first come in he put me in the midfield and I think it’s helped being part of a team that plays the way we play, with what the lads have got, it’s helped me settle in.

“I’ve enjoyed every minute of it and to play as many games as I have, I can only thank the manager, the staff, you know Rob [Kelly], Baz [Nicholson], Dave [Lucas] and all the lads for helping to do that.”

Looking back on the season, Grant chose to look back at a certain goal at a former club as Town raced towards the playoffs.

“Goals wise, I probably enjoyed the Scunthorpe one,” added Grant.

“The best goal I scored this season was Northampton at home but the one that stood out for me, you know going to a former club that Scunthorpe were and the fans give you a bit of stick.

“It was a massive game for us and to beat them comfortably and to score the goal, that’s the one that stood out for me.”
