Defender set to miss next seasonDefender Phil Picken will miss the entire 2013/14 season after further damaging his knee in an accident at the Gym.
Picken was injured at the start of the 2012/13 season in a collision during the game with Notts County on 01 September. Scans and tests saw Picks undergo a full cruciate rebuild, leaving him out of action for the rest of the campaign.
Phil was on the road to recovery and was on track to commence pre-season training on 20 June; however, a slip in the Gym last week has put him out for next season as he will now have to undergo the complete cruciate rebuild again.
Naturally we all wish Phil a speedy recovery as he starts the long recovery process again.
