Jamie's op update

11 May 2015

Physio Bobby brings us the latest on young striker


"The usual time-frame for this kind of operation is three months before a return to full training is allowed. If all goes well we may even let him have a mini holiday -providing he promises not to stay out as late as the clubbing casualties we saw on Saturday morning!"

"Jamie will be in a brace for six weeks and will join Carlos Edwards and Shaun Williams working with the medical department over the summer.

"The surgeon was able to repair the torn knee meniscus and stitch it back to its original position, rather than trim it. Although this meant a longer, more difficult operation with a longer rehab time, Jamie's knee should suffer less wear and tear in the future, which obviously due to his young age is very important.

Lions physio Bobby Bacic picks up the story: "This was made very apparent to young Jamie Philpot this week as we drove to hospital through London on Saturday at 6am watching the clubbers falling out of the nightspots whilst Jamie contemplated his first ever operation, and the fact he would be gym bound doing his rehab while his friends and work mates would be jetting off around the globe.

The life of the professional footballer is one that people may be envious of, but certain sacrifices have to be made by the players during their careers.
