Grant: I love the Cup

4 December 2015

Young midfielder looking for a run in the world's most famous competition.

Conor Grant has said that his generation appreciates the history of the FA Cup.

The Everton loanee is a Toffees fan and was born the year the Goodison Park outfit last lifted the trophy.

“Obviously I didn’t see the game but I was born in ’95 when a certain team won it!” Grant said.

“It’s a competition that must be taken seriously as it provides good opportunities.

“I love it and people will talk about the magic, but that’s right. There’s a buzz about the training ground at the moment ahead of this one.”

Rovers travel to take on League Two Cambridge United looking for a place in the third round for the seventh time in the last eight seasons and Grant was delighted to extend his loan spell.

“I’m delighted; it’s going well so far. I want to help the team, keep progressing and hopefully improve as the games go by,” he said.

“I went to Scotland last year and coming here is a different type of football, it’s a massive learning curve as a young lad and I need to show that I’m capable of adapting.

“Since I’ve been here, all of the results have mainly been positive. I know there’s a great set of lads here and we’re working hard to get results.

“They (Everton) want me to play games and play well which is my focus at the moment. I think we’ve got to take it game by game, keep winning and getting the right results because we’re a good team.

“The last game (a 2-0 win over Stalybridge) was my first experience in the cup and I’m looking forward to Sunday and hoping we can get the right result and get through to the third round and get a decent draw.”
