Not sure I would agree he was dreadful.

He was integral in that side under Jolley that avoided the drop.  He added something we really needed in that frontline, a workhorse.  He ran his socks off during the run in and quite literally won a few penalties that proved to be one of our lifelines in the end.

That summer I thought there was the potential to make a good player out of him. Physically he had the build to be a very effective League Two forward.  Problem was he seemed to need a run of games to get going but could never stay fit long enough to get them under his belt.

I think the injuries looked to have seriously dented his confidence, frustrated me towards the end that he seemed reluctant to use his size to any sort of advantage but we all saw the difference in Vernam of a player with and without confidence.

Best performance in a Town shirt was as an emergency centre-half at Palace. Hopefully another spell at Chorley will give him the boost he needs to get his career back on track.

He must've had something to have come through the ranks at the likes of Hull, Reading and Brighton. As others have said, he's been blighted with injuries since he's been with us...anytime he seemed to play well, he'd get injured.

He obviously went to Chorley and scored on his debut (which he then got injured in). Hope he can stay fit and crack on...seems a nice guy.
