Luke out for the rest of the season

Luke out for the rest of the season

Achilles injury picked up on Wednesday

 

Darlington full back Luke Trotman has learned this morning that he could be out for the rest of the season.

Luke went off with an achilles injury a few minutes before the end of Wednesday night’s home 1-1 draw with Gateshead, and an examination on Thursday morning suggests that it has been fully ruptured. He is waiting for a scan to confirm the bad news but he could be missing for the rest of the season depending on when surgery takes place.

Manager Alun Armstrong said; “His injury is a massive blow to us.”

Everyone at Darlington FC would like to wish Luke a speedy recovery.
