Episode 69 – Player Take Over: Release & Renewal

What does it feel like when a footballer is suddenly told he is no longer wanted? In the Player Take Over this time, Clyde’s ex-Falkirk defender Peter Grant talks Daniel Gray through that exact scenario, played out for him at the beginning of this summer when he was released by Queen’s Park.

In a raw, honest and reflective conversation, Peter discusses the impact of that decision, the dilemma over whether to give up on full-time football and the constant uncertainty of a career in the game. He talks too about the joy of playing alongside his brother, Ray, at Clyde, and asks Dan about fan perceptions of footballer lifestyles.

Like Michael Devlin, Peter will be back in future episodes to bring in friends (and relatives) from across the game.
