Ash Grant Extends Boomers Contract, Signs For 2018/19
Following a successful transition to life in Melbourne, 20-year old forward Ash Grant has signed for a further season with the Deakin Melbourne Boomers.
After performing strongly during Melbourne’s pre-season games, including scoring nearly 50pts in total across games against Dandenong and Bendigo, the Boomers wasted little time in securing Grant for the future.
“I’m just so excited, the move to Melbourne has been fantastic for me, the club has welcomed me with open arms, I feel like I’m developing my game quickly and learning from some great players and coaches around me,” said Grant.
“I just want to work hard and keep improving. The environment here at the Boomers is incredible, the club is doing some amazing things and I want to keep being a part of that.”
“Guy and the coaching staff really focus on developing skills, I feel like I get something out of every training session and that makes it an enjoyable place to be. I’m just thrilled to know Melbourne will be home for the foreseeable future,” added Grant.
For the Boomers, signing Grant to another year was an easy decision.
“From the moment Ash walked into the club she has displayed every single quality we love,” said Boomers GM Justin Nelson, adding “Ash works incredibly hard, she has a positive influence on everyone she meets and the fans have already warmed to her.”
“Importantly, we have already seen terrific signs from Ash out on court and we know her arrow is absolutely pointing up. Her attitude and work ethic is a delight to see.”
“Ash’s future at the Boomers looks very bright,” added Nelson.
