Looks promising for a good season for Grant! I hope he can continue to develop and force his way back into Spurs - the way things look he may have to fight for years to come with how young our squad is
My lecturer emailed me this morning. He is Rotherham season ticket holder, He sent me this:
''I got to see Grant Ward last night for the first time in a friendly V Leicester - I was hugely impressed - He's confident on the ball, competitive, can use both feet and he has vision - He scored a peach of a goal after a quick change of feet and he could have had a second with an outrageously audacious chip - He will be star!
"Grant Ward had a huge game, the young midfielder looking like the player we all hoped he would be after his sterling pre-season form. He snapped into tackles, fizzed up and down the right flank and the Robins had no answer to his driving runs when he had the ball at his feet.
“I thought he was the stand-out player,” Redfearn said. “He’s got a turn of pace, and he’s got pace with and without the ball. He can run away from people and he deals with the ball in tight areas.”
All that was missing was a goal as the Spurs loanee lost his head even more spectacularly than he was losing markers when he could have capped an almost complete display.
“I think it’s youthful exuberance. He gets in good positions with his speed but he’s then finishing at the same pace,” Redfearn said. “He needs a bit of composure, to steady himself. But I think that will come. He’s only 20.
“He gives you energy and athleticism. And he gets you up the pitch. I must have counted nearly a dozen times today where he’s picked it up and travelled with it 40/50 yards. It puts them under pressure. He’s played a real part in it today.”
