Morrison given extra time off
1:40pm Wednesday 11th December 2013 in Sport
NELSON midfielder Michael Morrison has been given an extended period of leave from the club to enable a full recovery from his broken leg sustained last season.
The former Victoria Park jojnt player-boss was injured while playing for Colne in the Pendle derby with Barnoldswick Town last season.
He has returned to action this term with the Admirals and has made three starts and four substitute appearances for Mark Fell’s men since got the all-clear.
But the injury continues to be an issue and he will be given sufficient time to allow the healing process to take place.
“We probably rushed him back a little,” said manager Fell.
“Mozza was keen to get back playing and we were keen to have a player of his quality, but he struggled to last for long periods of a game before pain set in.
“With the injury he’s had it should take over a year before he plays, so after talking to everyone involved we’re going to give him some time off, but keep him in and around the club to support his rehabilitation and get him back better than ever.”
