Bio Extra

In the summer of 2010 this left-footed striker was first spotted by Partick Thistle's scout Gus Black playing youth football and, impressed with his pace, a deal was signed within the week. The 17-year-old got his first taste of senior action towards the end of that first season, coming on for a couple of minutes of a 2-0 League win at home to Morton. As it transpired, that would be his only competitive game time at Thistle. In June 2011 he was part of the under-19 side who won the Stonehouse Violet Challenge Cup. Thistle beat Glasgow Perthshire 7–6 on penalties in the semi-final before defeating Stonehouse Violet 4–1 in the final with McGrotty scoring twice. Having failed to feature during the 2011–12 season, McGrotty was released in June 2012. He was playing with Tower Hearts by the middle of the decade and signed for Jim Delaney's Maryhill in August 2016. Was back at Tower Hearts by 2019.
