A message for all Cray Wanderers supporters from Grant Basey.
After considerable thought, I would like to announce my retirement from football. This decision hasn’t been taken lightly but I feel that I can no longer play to the levels that I have set myself throughout my career. The injuries I’ve had have taken their toll. Whilst this is the end of my playing chapter, I have a strong desire to stay in the game through coaching and one day become a manager. I would just like to personally thank all my team mates, Tony Russell, the owners of Cray Wanderers and last of all the Cray Massive!
Last year was a very good year for me and being named Player of the Year was up there with my greatest achievements. Thank you all for being so welcoming to me and I will hold Cray Wanderers very close to my heart. I wish the club all the very best and hope they succeed in fulfilling their dreams of moving into their new stadium.
I’m sure I speak for us all when I thank Grant for some great memories and goals and we wish him well with all his endeavours. I’m sure we will make him welcome and offer him a place on the terraces with the rest of the Massive. Thank you Grant
