Black Excited By Opportunity

Before the game against Leamington FC, the Club announced the signing of Grant Black, and the new addition spoke to the official website after the 3-2 victory.

The defender is pleased to join the Avenue:

“I’ve really enjoyed it, the lads have made me feel very welcome. I’ve played against Bradford before and I know they like to play good football. I know Mark Hume and John Deacey and as soon as the opportunity came up, I couldn’t wait to get here.”

However, Black admitted he enjoyed his time with his former club:

“I loved my time at Buxton FC, I played 299 games and I really enjoyed it, but this was a chance to get back into the Conference North (The Skrill North).”

What can Avenue fans expect from Black?

“Hopefully what you might have seen tonight with my hard work, I’m a right-back/right wing-back that likes to get forward and get balls into the box which will hopefully provide a lot of goals for the strikers.”
