Fans favourite Chris Hegarty, who returned to the Club this summer, ruptured his Achilles during our BETFRED game against Alloa. Since then Chris has undergone surgery to repair the damage and is at the start of a lengthy road to recovery.
Still in good spirits, Chris was delighted at getting the operation, as often doctors prefer these injuries to heel naturally, both lengthening the recover period even more and leaving a long term weakness in the ankle.
All going well Chris could be back running around February next year.
Young Declan Milne hobbled into Links Park on Saturday having been savagely attacked by two dogs in Aberdeen just over a week ago. This unfortunate event left Declan requiring an operation to mend tendon damage in his left leg and ankle.
Declan had just secured a loan spell with Junior outfit Carnoustie Panmure, but this has now been postponed as he is likely to be out for up to 8 weeks.
We wish both Chris and Declan speedy recoveries.
