Is Joel Grant as mad as a Hatter?
Here at VitalWatford, we have to question the logic of Jamaican U20 international Joel Grant, who is currently on trial at arch rivals L*t*n Town.
Sure he is still without a contract after being released by the Glory Hornet Boys at the end of last season but we have to ask him...just how desperate is he???
Grant, who donned the famous yellow shirt 10 times for the first team, scored for Town in their lucky 3-0 win over Hitchin - who, lets face it, just didn't have the heart to humiliate their opposition.
The striker spent last season on loan at Aldershot and scored 3 times for the Recreation Ground outfit.
Kevin Blackwell (yep he of 'lost 3-0 at the Millenium Stadium' fame) is looking at a host of trialists as he tries to find some kind of quality to add to his wafer-thin squad.
Dr Watford says...
If I am honest, Joel does have a bit of pace and a good attitude but I could never see him really breaking into the first team after we signed Ashikodi and Hoskins. Will need to learn to get his head up if he is to secure a contract up the M1...well at least he isn't looking to sign for the MK-Dons (heaven forbid).
