"We Knew It Was A Serious One With Callum"

11 December 2020

Alex midfielder, Callum Ainley, is expected to be out for almost 12 weeks after undergoing surgery on his injured hamstring early this week.

The operation conducted in London was a success and after a period of recuperation, Ainley will embark on a rehab to get back as soon as possible.

Ainley suffered a grade 3 hamstring tear in the early minutes of our FA Cup tie at Cheltenham Town.

David Artell updated “We felt Callum’s injury was serious early on. It is difficult to tell straight away - but when you cannot put any sufficient weight on your leg the day after and it’s a hamstring injury, then you know it is not a good day.

He added: “Our fears were confirmed and he has now had a successful operation on it. He will be expected to be out for 12-14 weeks, so a large chunk of time, but we will devise a plan for him and get him back stronger.”
