Spireites miss out on Vadaine Oliver.

Spireites miss out on Vadaine Oliver.

Vadaine Oliver 21, left Sheffield Wednesday after being out injured for a year and a half, he was thinking of turning his back on the game and was thinking of going back to University. After signing for the Imps, he told the Lincolnshire Echo: 'After I left Sheffield Wednesday where I was injured for a year-and-a-half, it didn't look too good for me. 'My head was swimming. I didn't know what I was going to do and I was toying with the idea of going back to university.

'I owe him everything (David Holdsworth), I was down and out for so long and to have the chance to make a go of it again - I cannot pay him back enough.'

It didn't take him long to pay him back, coming on as a sub against Walsall in the FA Cup he scored 2 goals to cause a cup shock and help his team win 3-2. He went onto score 13 goals for the Imps.

He would have been a good signing for the Spireites because their game suits is style of play. Instead he chose to go to a League One Club, it's not the first time the Spireites have missed out on a player because he wants to play at an higher level. They also missed out on Amine Linganzi who decided to join Gillingham instead of the Spireites.

He signed for Crewe for an undisclosed fee, the Alex also like to play the ball on the ground and he should be a great asset for them.
