David Willey working hard to recover.


 Northants Cricket all-rounder David Willey is currently recovering from a recent lower back injury and club Physiotherapist Barry Goudriaan gave an update on David’s rehabilitation

Barry said, “Unfortunately David had to come back from the England Performance Programme early due to an ongoing lower back problem, that he sustained during the season which we had all hoped he would recover from.”

“On his return, David had a bone scan done, where a healing stress fracture of the lumbar spine was revealed. Previous scans did not pick up the fracture’”

“Therefore, together with the ECB we have put him on a strict return to play protocol, where David is following a programme of progressive strength and conditioning to get him fit for the new season.”

“David is looking forward to bowling in outdoor conditions on the Barbados pre-season tour in March. On his return from Barbados, David will be involved in the scheduled friendlies before the LV= County Championship Division One match against Durham here at the County Ground from Sunday April 13th.”
