Cropper Undergoes Surgery
Friday, 16th Dec 2011 20:00
Keeper Cody Cropper has undergone surgery on the knee injury he suffered in training earlier this week. TWTD was first to reveal that the 18-year-old was set for a spell on the sidelines yesterday.
Cropper, who faces around two months out, tweeted: “Surgery is done. Knee feels pretty good at the moment and now it’s time to get on the road to recovery!”
The US U20 international has a professional contract until the end of the season when he completes the second year of his Academy scholarship.
Cropper had been expected to be amongst Town's subs for Saturday's game against Derby until suffering his injury.
His Academy colleague Conor O'Donnell, 17, could be named in the senior 16 for the first time unless Richard Wright is considered fit enough to take his place on the bench after his strained pec.

Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may know, on 1st April 2012, me and my partner Becky lost our beautiful son, Tyler. He was only 15 months old when he passed away peacefully in his sleep. Later that year, we began fundraising for a brilliant charity, The Lullaby Trust (formerly known as FSID).
Sam Allardyce – The Sensible Choice? by realprojection
My view of Sam Allardyce is heavily influenced by the most exciting match I’ve ever watched. Ipswich’s 5-3 (AET) defeat of Bolton in a play-off semi-final second leg in May 2000.
The National Conundrum by Bluetaff
No, not the referendum – although don’t get me started on that can of worms, I mean the constant disappointment of the national team at… well, the national game.
