Former Tamworth left-back Curtis Strong, who was due to join Walsall on a pre-season trial, has spoken via the Tamworth Herald and discussed his despair as injury could see him miss up to a year of action.

The 20-year-old former Wales Under-19 international, who joined the Lambs from Stoke City last summer, picked up a knee ligament injury while training ahead of a stint with the Saddlers, and is set to have a scan in order to determine the extent of the damage.

Speaking via TamworthHerald.co.uk, Curtis discussed his anguish as a freak accident looks to have ended his 2016/17 campaign, he said; "I am gutted. I think it's worse that it happened while I was training, than if it had happened during a game. I was getting myself fit and up to speed for the start of the season when it happened.

"I was changing direction while running on a field. It had been raining and my foot slipped and got caught in the ground, my knee jarred and I felt a crack. I was in agony.

"I saw my old physio at Stoke City and two other physios I know and they have diagnosed anterior cruciate ligament damage. It will mean I will need an operation and that will keep me out of action for 12 months, if it proves to be the case. I need to have an MRI scan but I will have to prove three people wrong.

"As I say, I am gutted as I had been invited to train with Walsall with a view to earning a deal there. I will just have to get on with it now and come back stronger."
