'These are exciting times for Grays, and the club's decision to go full-time professional shows their commitment in their quest for success.'

'Although to some extent we are looking for young players we aim to obtain the best players possible. Therefore, we would welcome approaches from any players from a professional or senior league background, who still have ambition and an honest approach to the game.'

The following Press Release has today been issued by the Club:-

Ref ; Grays Athletic F.C. - Ryman Premier Division
Full Time Professional Players

The 1st all full time professional team outside the football conference.

As from this date we will be employing all players on full time professional contracts and providing full time coaching/training by our and well qualified staff .

The group of players assembled will form the squad from which our team will be selected to play Ryman Premier Division and FA Cup/Trophy fixtures.

Our aim is to attract players of an age between 18 & 22 who have the ability and desire to play senior non league football and who have ambitions to play at the highest level.

We will also provide individual players with an opportunity to attend a local college and follow an academic course of their own choice.

We feel this new initiative provides security for the players and for Grays in knowing that next season will begin with fresh enthusiastic/committed players who will take the club forward.

The club aim to set up a training headquarters at Redbridge Sports Centre in Ilford who have first class facilities both indoor and out.

We aim to involve the local community both in Grays and in Redbridge and believe this will create opportunities for new sponsorship deals both local and nationally.
