Former New Saints forward Quigley joins Football League side Port Vale on loan
Former New Saints forward Scott Quigley has joined League Two’s Port Vale on loan from League One side Blackpool.
Quigley was signed by Blackpool last season in a record fee received by The New Saints expected to be £35,000 rising to £50,000.
After signing for Blackpool, he made nine substitute appearances for the Tangerines in the League, as well as five outings in the Checkatrade Trophy.
“Obviously I want to score goals, I’m a centre forward and that is the main thing, but I just want to help Port Vale get back into League One,” said Quigley to PortVale.co.uk
“I’m a strong lad and I’m quick as well, so I like playing in behind, but I don’t mind coming to feet either. A lot of people assume that I’m not that fast being a big lad, but I like to surprise them.
“The first game of the season is what I am looking forward to now, that is where my head is at the moment. I can’t wait to show what I’ve got to offer and hopefully I can push on from there.”
In January he moved on loan to Vanarama National League side Wrexham, scoring 8 goals in 16 appearances, as the Dragons missed out on a playoff spot.
The 25-year-old is a youth product of The New Saints and also played for Caersws, Carmarthen Town and the Cefn Druids during his time in Wales. He won four Welsh Premier League titles, three Welsh Cups and three WPL League Cups.
He scored a total of 47 goals in 119 appearances in his time with The New Saints.
Quigley links up with former New Saints defender Connell Rawlinson who joined the club earlier this summer, after penning a deal with the Valiants.
They will come up against former Rhyl and Newtown forward Jason Oswell on the 8th December later this year.
