Former Bath Schools player Evander Grubb has been signed by Huddersfield Town. Still only 16, Evander Grubb impressed the coaches at Huddersfield Town following his move from Bristol Manor Farm.
The 16-year-old was released by Bristol Rovers last year, but after an impressive start to the season in non-league at The Creek he found his way back into the professional game, earning a two-year scholarship with Championship Huddersfield following a trial.
Evander, from Radstock, made headlines in September after becoming the youngest scorer in the history of the FA Cup, netting a brace for Manor Farm in a 5-1 win over Cadbury Heath in the preliminary round. At 16 years and 54 days old, he beat the previous record by nine days.
Evander was always very slight, but always very lively and creative. In the Scharr Nations Cup in Stuttgart he managed to take Bayern munich apart 🙂 I am sure he will continue in the same spirit further north. We wish him all of the best.
