Mon­aghan con­firm McCar­ron needs surgery

Irish Independent - - Sport -

MON­AGHAN star Jack McCar­ron will not play any more foot­ball in 2020, it has been con­firmed, WRITES DONNCHADH BOYLE

There had been hopes that the knee in­jury he sus­tained while on duty with his club Cur­rin was not as serious as first feared.

How­ever, lo­cal sources have now in­di­cated that McCar­ron (above) will need surgery to fix the in­jury, mean­ing he is not ex­pected to see ac­tion again un­til the early part of the New Year.

It’s the lat­est blow for the 27-yearold who has al­ready had to un­dergo op­er­a­tions on a shoul­der in­jury, a dam­aged knee as well as on his foot in his ca­reer. The classy Far­ney for­ward also strug­gled with ham­string prob­lems, mean­ing that, at one stage in his ca­reer, he was forced to sit out the best part of four years through in­jury.

McCar­ron’s ab­sence is a blow for man­ager Seamus McE­naney whose side had won two and drawn one of their five league games to date.

Round three of the Mon­aghan se­nior foot­ball cham­pi­onship is down for de­ci­sion this week­end with the Far­ney boss hop­ing to avoid any more in­juries be­fore they open their cham­pi­onship against Ca­van on the week­end of Oc­to­ber 31/Novem­ber 1.
