Career[edit]

Gros played in France for Le Havre and in his native Réunion for JS Saint-Pierroise before signing for Scottish club Kilmarnock in September 2010.[1] After making a substitute appearance, he scored on his debut for the club in March 2011.[1] Gros signed a new three-year contract with the club in August 2013.[2] In March 2014, following a lack of games, Gros announced he was considering his future at the club.[3]

In June 2014 Gros went on trial with English club Oldham Athletic.[4] On 21 July 2014, Gros signed a one-month contract with the club.[5][6] Oldham manager Lee Johnson told Gros to prove his fitness in order to earn a longer contract with the club.[7] Gros was released by the club on 21 August 2014.[8]
