Sydney FC’s Rhyan Grant To Become Club’s First 300 Game Player

Sydney FC’s Rhyan Grant will achieve history this Saturday evening when he becomes the club’s first 300 game* player against Western United at Allianz Stadium (7.45pm).

Grant is already the club’s most capped and longest serving player and will set the new landmark almost 15 years after making his debut for the club.

“It’s a huge honour to become the first to 300 appearances, especially at the biggest club in the country,” he said.

“It feels fantastic to have represented Sydney FC so many times and to have had so much success throughout the years as well.

“It will be an extremely proud moment for me and my family on Saturday and it would be great to cap it off with a win.”

Grant unleashes a shot against Celtic earlier this season.

Head Coach Steve Corica praised Grant’s loyalty and longevity.

“Rhyan truly embodies what it means to be a footballer and embraces every moment he plays whether that’s in a game or during a training session,” he said.

“He has been central to Sydney FC’s key moments over a good number of years and has given his all for this club.

“It’s fantastic that the club will recognize his loyalty to Sydney FC and I hope our fans turn out for him this Saturday night.”

The 32-year old’s landmark is unlikely to be broken any time soon with Alex Wilkinson (213 apps) and Andrew Redmayne (184 apps) the only current players close to the number.

Grant is well out in front in terms of all time Sydney FC appearances and will reach 300 this Saturday night.

And it’s a number Grant expects to add to in the coming years.

“I still think I’ve got a good three or four seasons left in me after this one, so it would be nice to think I can get close to the 400 mark,” he said.

“I’ve always had tremendous support from all of our Members and fans and I still plan to give even more back to them.

“But for now the focus is on Saturday and rewarding them with a very important three points.”

Grant will be honoured before the game on Saturday evening at Allianz Stadium.

The Sky Blues can move five points clear of Finals chasing Western United by beating them in the 7.45pm kick off.
