The penny drops for cheeky keeper!

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Sheri­dan Robins

AS a man­ager you want loan play­ers to be in for a penny, in for a pound when they come to your club.

Lawrence Vigouroux, on loan at League One Swin­don from Premier League big guns Liver­pool, cer­tainly proved that to be the case when he paid a £50 fine for turn­ing up late for train­ing in one penny pieces.

The 21-year-old was sent back to An­field with his loan spell seem­ingly cut short, but re­turned to the County Ground later in the week hav­ing apolo- gised to his team-mates for his an­tics. Boss Mark Cooper told how he saw the funny side to the in­ci­dent, say­ing: “I thought it was bril­liant ban­ter but in the con­text it was the wrong way to go about it.

“We have given him a sec­ond chance and I am sure he will be grate­ful. He knows the way he be­haved was wrong and he has been in the chang­ing room and apol­o­gised to the play­ers.”
