Players Injured Update
Whilst catching our breath from a busy festive period and going into a jam-packed January, it’s an opportune moment to give supporters an update on the progress of players currently on the side-lines due to injury and ill health.
Manager Steve Watt and his coaching staff have done a miraculous job over the past few months, working with a squad ravaged by injury and within their resources, to bolster The Gate squad.
The Gate’s solid left-back sustained a medial collateral injury in November. Following treatment, Mills will have a further scan today with the hope of some positive news to guide the next steps of his recovery.
Sess has been ruled out for the past eight weeks due to a knee injury. A scan was undertaken this week and results from that should give us a clearer idea of when we can expect the influential defender back in a Blues shirt.
After a period of compassionate leave, the club is hoping to have Pidge back within the squad this January.
Having signed the Leyton Orient defender on a work experience deal to bolster the squad’s defensive options, Rian picked up a medial ligament injury whilst training with his parent club, ruling him out for the rest of the season. The Club would like to wish Rian the speediest of recoveries after this disappointing news for the promising, young player.
Jay picked up a calf injury during Monday’s warm-up and subsequently was unable to play a part in our New Year’s Day derby against Folkestone Invicta.
Jack missed this weekend’s clash with the flu and should be back fit within the next week.
Having damaged his anterior cruciate ligament during stoppage time in the Gate's WW Martin Thanet Cup match against Ramgsate, Flish underwent surgery in mid-November and has made promising progress since and is currently ahead of schedule.
Nathan has departed Hartsdown Park. We’d like to thank Nathan for his efforts during his spell back with The Blues and wish him all the best for the future.
After this Saturday’s trip to League leaders Billericay Town, it’s home comforts for The Gate who will play five back-to-back games at Hartsdown Park.
Keep your eyes peeled on our website for further details of our January Blues offer, inviting you to show your support for the boys this month.
