Vincent-Young May Need Surgery But Will Be Back For Pre-Season
Friday, 7th May 2021 09:40
Right-back Kane Vincent-Young is expected to require a minor operation on the shoulder he injured at Shrewsbury on Tuesday but it's anticipated that he'll be fit and ready to go at the start of pre-season.
The 25-year-old, who only recently returned from a lengthy spell out due to injury, fell awkwardly in the final moments of the game and was in significant pain before being helped from the field.
“Obviously, it was a massive disappointment for Kane to go over on his shoulder,” manager Paul Cook said at his morning press conference.
“It was the last kick of the game and his shoulder did pop out. Obviously, we’re having it scanned and analysed, and I think they’re just making decisions now as to the best outcome for him.
“I think it could possibly result in an operation as early as possible and that could see him probably out for four to six weeks, I think it is.
“But he’d then return to pre-season totally fit and ready to go so, whilst it is disappointing, I’m sure in terms of where Kane’s been, he’s been a massive plus for us in the last four games and a real shining light in relation to the future.”
Vincent-Young's absence for the final game of the season at home to Fleetwood on Sunday could see skipper Luke Chambers return to the side for what may be his final match for the club with his contract up this summer.

The Professional Footballers Who Never Play Football by Broganonthewing
There have been many changes to the English game in the last 40 years. The majority of these changes, if not all of them have all been influenced or dictated by money, both the making and saving of it.

How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
