'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Langley's Darkest Days

Bristol Rovers' new signing Richard Langley speaks about his injury nightmare and pays tribute to the friends and family who helped get his football career back on track.

"I must say a big thank you to the friends, family and team-mates who helped me through the hard times. There were low points, almost bordering on depression at times, but their support kept me positive and focused on getting through it and playing again. It was a long rehabilitation but I had two gym partners that used to go through the same routines with me everyday. That helped a lot and we became good friends through it.

"The fact I was at Luton at the time and the club was in such difficulty made it even harder. I could only look on as events off the field took their toll on the pitch. Even the boys who were playing found it hard to focus."

He's had some nasty injuries in his time - here's to hoping he can get some gams under his belt and remain injury free.

Agreed! A great potential who never really "made it" for whatever number of reasons!

He got a lot of stick unnecesarily in my opinion, and he did play to the crowd when he came back with a bit of gamesmanship.
