Josh Grant is a defender who formerly played for Chelsea.
Josh joined Chelsea as an Under-8.
Josh made his Under-18 debut in March 2014 as an Under-15 and emerged as something of an Under-18 regular as a schoolboy in 2014-15. That gave way to him being the regular Under-18 captain in league matches for Joe Edwards in his first season as a scholar, one that included 2015-16 FA Youth Cup and 2015-16 UEFA Youth League successes, and finished with an Under-21 debut as he confirmed his place on lengthy list of talented young defenders in the academy. Amongst his season highlights were signing a first professional contract and claiming four assists from right-back in a game at home to Swansea City.
He spent much of the 2016-17 season building upon that quiet progress, captaining Jody Morris' youth team and providing versatile enough to play in any and all defensive roles asked of him. Injuries impacted his efforts to step up to Development Squad level as well as feature in the bigger matches towards the end of the season, but he was on the pitch to help the Blues clinch a first league title in 33 years to complete a stunning treble. He helped lead the club to the 2018 UEFA Youth League Final before going on loan to Yeovil Town in 2018-19, and followed that with a move to Plymouth for 2019-20. Despite injuries and a change of position to become a holding midfielder, he excelled and helped Plymouth to promotion when Covid-19 brought a premature end to the campaign.
He was released at the end of his contract in June 2020.
Josh has represented England at Under-18 level, travelling to South Korea for a tour in the summer of 2016.
