Booming left-footer Gavin Grose has been back on the training track with Mt Gravatt and looms as yet another key recruit for the Vultures.

Grose has back training for the past three weeks and is looking better every time, according to Vultures officials.

Still only 22, Grose spent two years on the Port Adelaide rookie list as a second round pick in late 2006 before returning home in 2009.

After a slow start to that QAFL season where he experimented at centre-half-forward, he was one of the best players over the second half of the year when stationed at centre-half-back.

His massive kicks from full-back that often landed near the centre circle were one of the highlights of the year, prompting interest from NFL clubs in the US.

Grose gave away football last season to play in the local gridiron competition, where he was part of the Bowl-winning side.

However, he has opted against going to America and his presence is a massive bonus for Mt Gravatt.

At 192cm and 94kg, he is perfectly built for the key defensive role and will further strengthen a side that has the capability to press for the inaugural NEAFL premiership, given the strong finish to the last QAFL season.
