Scott Quigley says his Port Vale loan spell was hard to take and a blip

Blackpool striker Scott Quigley has expressed his frustration at his lack of gametime while on loan with Port Vale saying that he thought he had been signed to play regularly for the first-team.

Quigley was signed on loan for the season from Blackpool but the spell was cut short by his parent club who promptly loaned him out to National League side FC Halifax Town. The move was widely regarded as a reaction by Blackpool to the number of games played by Quigley for the Valiants.

When you think you should be playing and you’re not, it was hard to take. It was a bitter pill to swallow because I thought I was going there to play…

During his spell the striker made just two starts plus a further ten sub appearances scoring once.

Quigley has told the Halifax Courier: “I’ve always believed in myself, but when you think you should be playing and you’re not, it was hard to take. It was a bitter pill to swallow because I thought I was going there to play.

“I’ve been limited to coming off the bench. Other than Boxing Day, I hadn’t played 90 minutes for two months.

“But that’s not knocked my confidence, that’s going to push me on even more to want to succeed. Hopefully people will look at that six-month spell as a blip.”
