Mark on the mend

An operation solves Mark Ricketts’ injury mystery after previous treatment failed to have desired effect.

Fleet physio Paul Wilson reports that Mark Ricketts (left) went under the knife on Saturday morning to try and discover why
his knee injury was not improving. It was discovered he had a small chip of bone
floating in his knee joint. This has been successfully removed and he should be
back in training within three weeks.

Gary MacDonald has had his plaster removed today. The consultant is very
pleased with how the Achilles is repairing and Gary is now capable of bearing his full weight in the Aircast Boot, which he will have to wear for another four weeks before a full
rehab programme can begin.
Of the less serious injuries, Sacha Opinel has a calf strain and Mark De Bolla pulled up during the Cambridge
game with tightness in a hamstring. Both players will undergo fitness tests before
Saturday’s game against Stevenage.
