Grant Basey joins Ebbsfleet

Seems like Grant Basey has joined Brownie and Reg down at Ebbsfleet, wish him well but thought "Pacey" was better than Conference South.

  • He's had two serious longterm injuries.

    That thug Blizzard a few years back and a cruciate, or similar, at Wycombe last season.

    Hopefully an environment like Ebbsfleet where there are friendly , familiar faces will help him come back.

    His lack of pace (even before his injuries) was always going to limit his progress but he is definitely good enough for league 1 or 2 in my view.

    agree with that Len. I wish him all the best at Charlton Mark 2.

    He's good enough for the levels already mentioned but in this current age you are soon forgotten about very quickly. Eg: Fry - Dartford. Borrowdale - Tonbridge.

    Good luck to him in a side with one league win so far this season
  • And by most accounts were lucky to scrape through at home to Folkestone on saturday
  • Was right next to that Blizzard foul, pissed as a fart seeing double but saw it and cringed, really bad stuff and not even a card if I remember rightly. Ergh
  • The foul was bad, but Grant was never good enough for high level pro football - too one paced and flat footed against even the very best League One footballers.

  • We had him chanting 'we hate Millwall' in a club in Dublin a few years ago. Best of luck to him.
  • Always saw him as a lower league Gareth Barry in the making, didn't really have the physical attributes to be a modern full back but he could be a tidy holding midfielder imo. Hope he gets his career back on track down there. It's a club with potential right now so he could easily work his way back into league football.
  • Loads of decent players are unable to find a job. Money is tight everywhere (except the prem) and at the lower levels a degree of realism has taken hold .. clubs can't spend money they don't have
  • Better centre back than left back. Lack of pace less of an issue in the middle and he reads the game well

  • Hopefully Ebbsfleet will have a good run in the cup with Grant having a good run in the side where he quickly gets snapped back up by a League team.

    Wish him all the best... always liked him as a player
  • I hope he bought a jug

    :-)
  • Unfortuanatley was injured on his ebbsfleet debut had to come off at half time hope it is not too serious but one paper states it is a reoccurrence of his knee injury. Hope not a good lad and I wish him well.
  • When he got in the side 09/10 season was rarely embaressed. When he played center half, his excellent distribution came to the fore and his reading of the game meant his pace wasn't a weakness: certainly quicker than many of our cd's in recent years.

    His matches for Peterborough where at center half, and they got promoted. Easily league one level. Good luck to him.
  • How long before we are all over there ?
  • Wish him good luck for the future, sad news.
  • How very sad for Grant, wish him all the best. All gone downhill after that terrible tackle at Bristol Rovers. Helped ruin a decent pro career.
  • Really feel for the lad, that horror tackle was the beginning of the end for his career.

  • Sorry to read this and wish Grant all the best for the future.
  • Very sad - always came across as a decent lad. Hope he has a plan B.
  • Went along today to The FA Cup First Qualifying round to watch VCD Athletic vs Hampton & Richmond Borough. Grant Basey played the full 90 for VCD and had a solid game, Played well along the backline and was looking very comfortable on the ball.
  • Blimey.
  • Apparently hit a 149 for the Bromley 1st XI this summer, serious batting that

    Wasn't it Basey that suffered that rascal tackle against Bristol Rovers after about 2 minutes? Don't think he ever recovered from that.
  • It was after less than two minutes. It was after about 20 seconds and only got a yellow. Solly came on and looked a bit lost. He was only 17 tbf.
  • Dominic Blizzard was the scumbag with the challenge.
