The 20-year-old Irishman was signed as a free agent in the summer of 2014 after he left Manchester United's academy and had been making steady progress as a regular in David Unsworth's Under-21s side.
Unsworth said of the striker, who has already undergone surgery: “The boys are all gutted for Sam because they are a close group and he’s a popular member of the squad.
"We will give him all the support he needs and I look forward to having him back amongst us as soon as possible.”

Depending on the site, breaks can be relatively easy to recover from, though no doubt the lad will be frustrated as hell by the enforced lay-off. Hopefully he will be able use that frustration and the shock of a major injury to focus and come back more determined to succeed than ever.

Just a little note to those who are complaining about tackles in training, Imo training should be done with some common sense, especially in regards to tackling, but come on, it's a man's game and injuries will unfortunately happen.
I'd guess more injuries would happen if players were to prance about making half hearted tackles.

Absolutely, we wouldn't want to be teaching the younger players how to tackle, god forbid one of them will take that mantality into the first team and go and tackle an opposing player......what a scandal that would be.
Good luck to the lad, hope he heals fast and strong.

Have you seen this horror challenge that's broken the young man's leg? Or are you just assuming that they fly into each other based on absolutely nothing?
Have many broken legs have we had in training? It's hardly an epidemic.
