very true... and his last league club, Notts County, he again suffered a major injury hence dropping out of the Pro game....I think he broke both his legs at critical stages of his young career - then did he have a bad injury after he'd broken into the team? Perhaps a key reason he didn't have enough pace and is now playing for Farsley.
Apologies, I used that term merely to indicate that he was a youth team product.Good to know he's doing OK. I wouldn't describe him as a former youth player... he definitely played enough games to be just labelled as a former player.
I think this lad was unlucky.
