With the County performing well in all forms of the game at the moment, it’s no surprise that some of the players have picked up injuries.
Head Physiotherapist Barry Goudriaan gave northantcricket.com an update on those currently in the treatment room.
Stephen Peters: Broken Finger – Stephen is making good progress. He has a pin in his finger that is due to be removed next week before he’s ready for fitness work. He’s about four weeks away from playing cricket.
Rob Newton: Ankle – Rob had an MRI scan and sustained Ankle ligament damage whilst batting against Kent. He is set to have a test on it next Wednesday by Professor Bill Ribbans to see if an operation is needed. Depends on the results of that test to see how long he will be out for.
Olly Stone: Side Strain – Olly injured his side the day after scoring a century against Essex 2nd XI and looks set to miss between 6-9 weeks.
Con de Lange: Achilles Tendon – Con has a partial Achilles Tendon rupture and is making very good progress. He is walking in the pool unaided – Out for 4-6 weeks.
James Kettleborough: Finger – James has a complicated fracture but is making gradual progress, he will hopefully be able to pick up a bat later next week.
Ben Duckett: Knee – Ben took a full blow on his knee two weeks ago. An xray didn’t show a fracture, just heavily bruised. Hopefully he’s fit for the Yorkshire Bank 40 vs. Sussex.
