Matlock Town are pleased to announce the signing of twenty four year old defender/midfielder Kevin Grocott from Mickleover Sports.
Kevin began his career with Burton Albion making two appearances for the first team as well as spending a month loan spell at Vauxhall Motors who at the time were still part of the football conference.
Following his release from Burton Albion, Kevin would make the move to Vaxuhall Motors a permanent one where he would stay for only a short couple of months until October 2011 when he would make the move to Mickleover Sports becoming a regular in their first eleven under our now management team Craig Hopkins and Glenn Kirkwood.
This season, Kevin has so far made twelve appearances in the league and is equally at home at full back, centre back or in the middle of midfield. He will be eligible to play against league leaders Whitby Town tomorrow (5/11/16)
Joint manager Glenn Kirkwood was delighted with his new signing “We tried to get him in the summer but that move didn’t come off at the time so we are delighted he has now joined what we have going on here. He’s the perfect player to bring into our squad and has the attitude, ability and desire to do well for us and is a very popular lad so will fit in well in the changing rooms”
Welcome to the club Kevin!
