The Socceroos number four was given a scholarship by the AIS Program after the 17-year-old Canowindra local impressed scouts.

A move to Sydney FC NYL followed as the teenager rose up the ranks to eventually settle at right back as Vitezslav Lavicka's 2009/10 side finished champions.

He scored the equalising goal for the Sky Blues in the 2016/17 A-League Grand Final against Melbourne Victory which they went onto win.

After suffering a second serious knee injury, Grant doubted his future – but he would come back stronger, building up some serious form that led to his Socceroos debut against Lebanon in 2018.

In the 2019/20 season, Grant scored the winning goal for Sydney in the A-League Grand Final against Melbourne City and was awarded the Joe Marston Medal for best on the ground.

Best Socceroos Moment:

The dynamic wing-back emerged as a consistent starter in Graham Arnold's backline during the 2019 Asian Cup campaign in the UAE. Starting and finishing all five matches throughout the tournament highlighted his importance to the future of the Socceroos squad.

A-League Connection:

Rhyan Grant continues his stature as a cult figure in the A-League. He has surpassed the 10-year mark at current club Sydney FC, making over 200 appearances and being crowned a champion on three occasions.
