Happy As Harry

16 February 2017

TOWN midfielder Harry Clifton is enjoying life at Grantham Town and there's some good feedback filtering back to Marcus Bignot. 

Clifton is currently on loan with the Evo-Stik League Northern Premier side until the end of the season, and is picking up some rave reviews.

Speaking at today's press conference, Town boss Marcus Bignot enthused. "Harry Clyfton is the talk of that league at the moment. Every manager we speak to, they are telling us that we have got a player on our hands. 

And Harry is enjoying playing regularly with The Gingerbreads. He said: "I'm enjoying it - playing week in, week out. I've been playing Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday since I've been here. It's a lot of games but it's a good learning curve for me.  Hopefully the physical aspect is going to help me grow physically and as a player as well."

Marcus Bignot also believes that the other players out on loan will come back better players for their experience.  

He added: "Josh Venney, hand on heart, when I came into the football club, he was a shadow of the player that we saw play against us (Solihull Moors) when we played Grimsby in the FA Trophy. Shadow of the player, nowhere near it. I'm glad to say that he's come back and getting back to that player. He was a top drawer player.  He made a mark on that game and we certainly went away talking about him. 

"And Max Wright is going from strength to strength. They are going out on loan, they are growing up, they are amongst men. They know what it is like to play on a Saturday afternoon with three points at stake. Then they come into the building and they are in and around the first team as well," he added.
