Atkinson Makes Debut

Last updated : 13 October 2007 By Andy Beill
Yesterday, the winger joined the Valiants on a month's loan. Today, he made his debut in the 0-1 League One defeat to Brighton at Vale Park, coming on for the last 15 minutes but unable to help salvage a point.

Atkinson, who celebrates his 19th birthday tomorrow, is contracted to the Tigers until the end of next season, but has yet to play for the club in any competition.
