Ciderspace News Page : Cruciate Damage Confirmed For Morris
16 October 2007 : Cruciate Damage Confirmed For Morris
Yeovil Town striker Lee Morris has had his worst fears confirmed by news that he has definitely damaged cruciate ligaments in his knee, following an injury sustained at Edgar Street in mid-August as part of a Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie against Hereford United.

Lee had his full consultation yesterday and the specialist revealed that the news was not what Morris had been hoping to hear. Manager Russell Slade told the Western Gazette the situation:

"We have found out, following his consultation, that his latest injury is cruciate ligament damage. It is the worst scenario for him and he will be at a real crossroads now in terms of his career."

The odds are now heavily stacked against Morris. The specialist, who operated on Lee for a similar injury before he became a Yeovil Town player, revealed that he knew of only one footballer who had come back from a second cruciate ligament injury. Lee therefore faces the prospect that, despite being only 27 years old, that he may have to hang up his boots. Let's hope that does not prove to be the case.
