Nav Suffers Knee Ligament Damage
Thursday, 12th Aug 2010 10:01 by TheSilkWeb
Ex Silkmen midfielder Alan Navarro is expected to be out of football for months after damaging his cruciate knee ligaments during Tuesday night's game between Brighton and Northampton.
Navarro went for a scan yesterday and it was announced that he has some serious damage to his knee which will rule him out from playing for most of this season.
Brighton's manager Gus Poyet said “I am hoping it will be just six months out but we will have to see. It is a terrible blow for Alan. He has worked extremely hard through pre-season and was in great shape in terms of match fitness."
“He is one of our key players and I felt he was in great form in recent weeks. He will come back, and he may still have a part to play at the end of this season, but for now he faces some serious surgery and a lot of hard work with the physios in terms of his rehabilitation."
TheSilkWeb.com wish Alan all the best in his recovery.

I have the first of several Xmas work outings tonight, so I'm posting this a bit earlier.
Matches of Yesteryear - Exeter v U's 27/11/91 by wessex_exile
So, back again after my break for international duties. With our ongoing exploits in two of the three domestic cup competitions, it’s nice that the random match selector has chosen one of our earlier forays into a cup competition – albeit the one competition we’re no longer involved in this season…
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
Matches of Yesteryear - Mansfield v U's 18/8/18 by wessex_exile
Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.
