Crewe is the best club he could be at...

Aldershot Town manager Gary Waddock says Crewe is the best place for Joel Grant to be. Grant signed from the league newcomers today for a Aldershot record of 130,000 having been at the Shots for just 12 months.

Grant is now set to get the nod on the right wing come August and Shots boss Waddock says it's a pleasing deal all round.

Speaking to Waddock said: "He is a fantastic player and one I rate very highly.

But this is another step for him, to a higher league and, with Crewe`s reputation for bringing through young players, Crewe is the best club he could be at, apart from ours.

"We will miss him as he is talented and a crowd pleaser. We wish him well."

The 20 year old is described as a pacey, tricky winger. said of Grant:

'While he was sometimes guilty of drifting out of games, he also offered the Shots skills unrivalled at Conference level and he may well have excelled all the more in a higher league. Crewe certainly think so.'

Meanwhile, Steve Holland has moved on to his other targets with Steve Collis & Robert Snodgrass in his grasp.

He sounds like a usual winger if he drifts in and out of games.
