Micky Adams has hinted that luckless winger Lewis Haldane may have played his last game for the Valiants.
The news on Lewis isn’t great at the moment I have to say
Adams told the press that “the news on Lewis [Haldane] isn’t great at the moment I have to say, and there is a possibility that we may have seen the last of him. He’s not looking good but we’ll make an announcement when we need to.”
If Haldane is unable to recover from his latest injury setback it will be a devastating blow for the likeable winger, who has battled to return to full fitness.
The pacy wideman has endured a wretched time with injuries since joining the Valiants.
Haldane initially signed on loan from Bristol Rovers in 2009 and scored his first goal in Vale colours in a 3-1 JPT win over Stockport County. His loan deal was then extended until the end of the season in January 2010 and he later agreed a permanent switch to Vale until the end of the following season.
Howver, the 2010/2011 season was a disappointment as he lost form and fitness after suffering an allergic reaction to an insect bite which sidelined him for several weeks in the summer.
Then, just after he’d recovered his fitness, he sadly suffered a double fracture to his leg during Vale’s JPT game with Tranmere in August 2011 and missed the remainder of last season.
He has clearly struggled to return from such an awful injury and had to have a follow-up operation this summer to remove scar tissue.
Haldane’s Vale career tally stands at 51 starts, 25 sub appearances and 4 goals.
