GRINDING IN FIRST GEAR

1999 Citroen AX • 10,400 miles

My car keeps grinding when I downshift to 1st gear when the car is still moving slightly, it also feels like its boucing of something and struggling to get in when im trying to get it in gear. Its fine when its stationery can get into 1st no probs and every other gear is fine. Is my transmission doomed?

When its only one gear like that its a bad syncronizer in the transmission. Thats what make the gear align and go in and out of the gear.
