JURORS at the Old Bailey this week started considering their verdicts in the trial of a former Wycombe Wanderers footballer accused of murder.

Gavin Grant, who joined the Blues last summer, is one of two men alleged to have gunned down Leon Labastide in London in May 2004.

He and 26-year-old Gareth Downie shot Mr Labastide in a revenge attack after a friend's flat was raided, jurors at the Old Bailey were told.

The court heard Mr Labastide was killed on his doorstep after Grant and Downie had been “thoroughly wound up” by 32-year-old Damian Williams, who is charged with conspiring to commit murder.

Ex-Wanderers striker Grant, 25, also faces two counts of perjury.

The six female and six male jurors retired to consider verdicts on Tuesday. The trial began in October but Grant could not be named for legal reasons until this week.

He was signed by former Wanderers boss Peter Taylor ahead of the Blues' promotion-winning campaign last season from Millwall.

Prior to being released by the League One outfit, he had spent time with Gillingham and was sent out on loan to Grays Athletic and Stevenage Borough.
