The former Bristol Rovers midfielder Charlie Ten-Grotenhuis was desperate to impress at the JA Sports Management exit trials day, so much so that he was willing to stand in at centre back to show his versatility on the pitch.
Ten-Grotenhuis, 20, signed for the Gas from National League South side Hampton and Richmond Borough in the Summer of 2017 and was a regular feature for the development side at Rovers.
The tall, athletically gifted midfielder signed on loan for Gloucester City in the latter stages of 2017, before moving back to The Mem.
Starting off Sunday’s second game in the centre of midfield, Ten-Grotenhuis came back on for the final half an hour in the completely alien position for him in the heart of defence.
Severn Sport spoke to Charlie Ten-Grotenhuis following his performance to gather his thoughts on how he felt he acquitted himself.
