Slough Town have signed defender Freddie Grant from Bath City, having kept track of the left-sided player following his stand-out performances against the Rebels for Wealdstone a couple of years ago.
Grant started his career at Oxford United and, despite being only 24, has solid National League South experience following spells with Oxford City, Wealdstone, Hemel Hempstead Town and Bath City.
He was also signed by Maidenhead United for the 2019/20 National League season but only made three starts for the Magpies.
“He was one that really stood out for us at Wealdstone a couple of years back, where his performances earned him numerous awards and subsequently a move to Maidenhead in the National League,” said joint manager Neil Baker.
“He is another great character who is also familiar with a number of our players already, so, like our other signings we feel he is a player who can fit in straight away.”
On twitter Grant said: “Officially a Rebel. It’s going to be a good year.”
It was also confirmed last week that striker Dan Roberts would be joining league rivals Dartford FC.
Roberts scored 13 goals in 58 appearances for the Rebels after signing from Windsor, including a fine hat-trick away to Dorking Wanderers.
On Twitter, Roberts said: “Am delighted to signed for Dartford. From the first meeting the ambitions of the club were clear and it’s something I can’t wait to be a part of. Looking forward to meeting all the boys and also seeing all the fans back at Princes Park. Let’s go!”
