ACE ANDRE SETS NEW PREMIER AMBITION
BRENTFORD striker Andre Gray has set his sights on going all the way from NonLeague to the Premier League.
Gray was playing for Hinckley United three years ago and only joined Brentford in the summer from Luton.
QPR’s Charlie Austin and Leicester’s Jamie Vardy have reached the Premier League via Non-League football and that’s an inspiration for Gray.
The 23-year-old said:“I would love to replicate what they have done. There has been talk of an England callup for Austin, so it just shows anything can happen.
“You’ve also seen the likes of Rickie Lambert climb the divisions as well.
“I had never started a game in the Football League before I came here, never mind the Championship.
“I’ve come from NonLeague and it’s a big step up. I’ve done that and hopefully I can do that again.
“I think I’m still a bit raw. I’m taking some defenders by surprise, which can help me, but it can also be my biggest downfall as well. I need to mix it up.
“I was taken aback by some of the teams and players we were coming up against at first, but I’m comfortable at this level now and have more to give.”
