Scottish international forward Abbi Grant could have a big role to play for her new manager at Birmingham City once the FA Women’s Super League resumes, whenever that may be.
The 24-year-old Dundee-born forward joined the Blues last summer following a spell playing in the Belgian Super League with RSC Anderlecht and she is under contract at the SportNation.bet Stadium for next season.
Birmingham City will now operate under interim manager Charlie Baxter whilst the club search for a new permanent boss following former manager Marta Tejedor’s exit by mutual consent earlier this month.
Regardless of who Grant will be playing under at Birmingham City in the future, the striker is sure to be key to any plans for the Midlands side.
The Blues have netted just five goals in 13 games in the FA Women’s Super League this season, the lowest goal tally in the entire top flight. Forward Grant has netted two of those five goals, although Birmingham City have failed to score in five league games since the player was last on the scoresheet.
Should Birmingham City’s interim manager Baxter or the potential new boss get a regular tune out of Grant, the club will have a quality player on their hands. The striker highlighted her talent only last week with goals for Scotland in their Pinatar Cup victories against Iceland and Northern Ireland. Her goal against the former was her first at senior level for The Tartan Army.
You get the feeling that there is much more to come from Grant and it could be very much to Birmingham City’s benefit should the player be coached in the right way.
