RADCLIFFE have appointed experienced EFL forward Bobby Grant as their new player-assistant manager.

Grant will be number two to Lee Fowler at the Northern Premier League Premier Division side as well being a member of Boro’s squad.

The 30-year-old, who scored seven goals in 29 appearances on loan at Oldham last season, was a free agent having come to the end of his Wrexham contract.

The versatile forward began his career at Accrington, upon breaking into the first-team he caught the eye with his performances which saw him earn a move to Scunthorpe United. After two-years with the Iron, he signed for Rochdale in 2012.

In his first permanent campaign at Spotland, he scored 16 goals in 38 games in all competitions.

After a move to Blackpool he went onto have a productive loan spell with Shrewsbury Town.

In 2015 Grant joined Fleetwood and became a regular in the three years with the Cod Army before moving onto Wrexham having another spell on loan at Accrington.
