With the season about to start we have a number of players either injured or absent.
On the injury list we have James Blanchard (has an op on his injured knee scheduled for 24th July), Steven Davidson (who needs a small op on a cartilage tear), Liam Forbes (recovering from the major op he underwent after a head knock at Clach), William Pauline, (awaiting treatment on a groin issue), Grant Pennet (recovering from the ruptured Achilles tendon he suffered at Brora towards the end of last season) and Dan Smith (recovering from the knee op he had in late February). We wish all of these guys a good and full recovery and hope to see them back in a Vale shirt in the not too distant future.
Also absent at the moment are Matthew Mackie (on a month’s loan at SLFL side Selkirk FC) and Paul Sutherland (who has taken some time away from football to concentrate on personal interests). Matthew will be moving to the Edinburgh area for studies after the summer. We look forward welcoming Paul back to PRP in due course.
