Bobby Grant feels he doesn’t have a point to prove this season, but admits his performances at Wrexham since signing a permanent deal last January were well below the standards he expects of himself.
Grant has been one of Wrexham’s star players so far in pre-season, the forward insisting he has found a new lease of life after putting last season’s woes behind him.
The forward, who twice hit the woodwork in midweek as Wrexham went down to a 1-0 loss to Portuguese Primeira Liga side Portimonense SC, opened his pre-season account in Saturday’s 2-0 win at National League North side AFC Telford United, slotting home after good work by Jason Oswell and Shaun Pearson.
Grant came in for huge swathes of criticism towards the back end of last season, but is confident he can find top form over the coming weeks as Wrexham build-up to their opening National League game of the new season on Saturday, August 3 when Barrow head for the Racecourse.
“Last year was a tough year, I had a few problems off the field and it sometimes is not easy,” said Grant.
“You don’t want to bring your problems to work but if you don’t play this game with a clear head and are fully focused then your standards aren’t there. Throughout my career I’ve set my own standards and last year I was far below them.”
