Britton Set For Groin Operation

Britton Set For Groin Operation

Leon Britton goes under the knife on Monday to cure a long standing groin problem.

Graham Hollway, a consultant orthopaedic surgeon for the British Olympic Squad will be replacing a part of Leon's groin.

The operation will keep him out for 6 weeks which should see him back for the start of the new season.

Physio Richard Evans said: 'It's a problem Leon picked up a few months before the end of last season,''

'The treatment we gave him got him through and allowed him to figure in the play-off final without any problems - as you could see by his performance.

'But the injury hadn't gone away and rather than wait until the start of the season to see if the groin had repaired itself on its own, which would have been unlikely, we felt it was better for Leon to undergo the operation and sort the problem out once and for all.

'Rehabilitation will take him about six weeks, so he should be fit and raring to go for the start of the season.''


Darren Way was expected to miss the season the start but he could be back in time as his operation went well. Owain Tudur-Jones is another midfielder expected to miss the season start.

Richard Evans said about his Way's injury: 'The consultant was very happy with the operation,''

'He removed the extra bone growth and released the muscle around the injury.

He should be walking without crutches within six weeks before stepping up his rehabilitation at the beginning of August.

'You are looking at the end of August to the beginning of September for his comeback.''

Way and Britton should be back for the start, I don't think OTJ is back until some time in September.

Hopefully he'll be back by the time the season starts, we need to sign a right winger anyway.
