Jimmy Keohane underwent surgery last week, on a shoulder problem that has been causing him trouble for some time.
We’re pleased to say that the operation went well.
Manager Robbie Stockdale says there’s now a lengthy recovering process.
“The shoulder has been coming out [dislocating] for a significant amount of time,” said the gaffer.
“He’s not been able to take proper throw-ins for about a season and a half, I believe.
“Jimmy went under the knife last week and everything was straight forward, but there will now be quite a long period of time before he can return to physical training in terms of contact, because we’ve got to be really careful that it doesn’t come out again.
“He’ll have his own programme to start pre-season, but we’re hoping that he’ll be available by the time the season comes around.”
