This page will give Derbyshire Members and supporters the latest news about player injuries, as well as an update on their recovery and when they are expected to return to action.
Poynton has been ruled out through injury for the rest of the season. Investigations by medical specialists have revealed that the 24-year-old’s lower-limb injuries, sustained in the car accident that tragically killed his father Keith, will require a longer period of rehabilitation. He is, however, expected to be fit for pre-season.
Taylor sustained an ankle injury in the Royal London One-Day Cup fixture versus Lancashire at the start of August. He continues to be monitored by the medical staff with the hope to return to action before the end of the season. Graeme Welch said: “He’s done something to the tendons but he might even be back for the last couple of games of the season. He’s a young lad and he might heal quickly so we’ll see how he goes over the next couple of weeks.”
After a long spell on the sidelines, Jonathan Clare is continuing to work with medical staff and the Strength & Conditioning Coach. He is featuring in the Second XI One-Day Trophy match versus Warwickshire this week and his fitness will be reviewed.
