News has come through this morning that Basford United keeper Saul Deeney will be out for most of the season with a long-term injury.
“Both Saul Deeney and the club we’re dealt the tough news that was half-feared after the ‘keeper missed the last month of the season through a back problem.
After considerable Physiotherapy struggled to make improvement, a scan has revealed a structural disc problem that will only be cured with substantial long term rest and recuperation.
Basford has been very proactive in addressing this and will hope to make an announcement shortly.
As fans will remember, Basford went without youngsters Colin Lewis and Jake Wood, ages 16 and 20 respectively, for a considerable amount of time of last season. After the latter stages of the Integro league cup and Notts Senior Cup, both have done brilliantly in their progress and the club is confident they have bright futures in the game.
Basford United Chairman Chris Munroe stated; ‘Saul is a very special person and has given us fantastic service. As the injury could affect his full time job we will be there for him in his time of need. We will talk to him as soon as he returns with the other players this week about likely positions.
Everyone at the club wishes Saul the very best with his recovery.”
