Monaghan confirm McCarron needs surgery
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.
