That's Lucky!

Scoffham, who signed his first contract in League football last February, has seen his progress plans brought to an abrupt halt in his first full season as a full-time professional wrecked by a broken leg that has ruled him out of any sort of exerting preparations for the season ahead after breaking his leg on the final day of last season.

'Could have been worse'
A fall at home – reported last month – has only proven the true ill fortune of our tainted youngster, an injury which – after examinations of the injury earlier this week – will see the former Gedling man sit out for a further six weeks, adding to his lonely run of almost six months, to date.

Scoffham, 22, told the Nottingham Evening Post: "I thought I had broken my leg properly again," said Scoffham. "It was certainly as painful as when I first did it."

"I fell down a big step at home and I thought it had gone. I managed to limp upstairs and lie down and the pain went away, but when I woke up it hurt even more - and I couldn't move."

"I went for an X-ray and it showed that I had cracked it, rather than broken it properly."

"It is not as bad as it could have been, to look on the bright side, but it is still going to be around six weeks before I am back in action."

"I am so fed up, I am beginning to wonder what I have done to deserve this kind of luck." said Scoffham, who now faces a further spell on the sidelines.

"It has been dragging on for so long now, I just want to get back and play football."

NCM look forward to seeing the raw enthusiasm of Scoffham, likely to return around mid-to-late December, back in the black and white stripes and, of course, back in the goals.
