Derbyshire wicketkeeper Tom 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, are worse than originally thought and will require a longer period of rehabilitation.
Elite Performance Director, Graeme Welch said: “We are all bitterly disappointed for Tom. He’ll get the best possible support from our medical team during his rehab and will remain very much a part of the group.
“Whilst it’s a setback for the lad, but he’s a resilient character and a strong professional. He’ll throw himself into rehab and come back fitter, stronger and more determined than before.”
The Club is working hard to augment its wicketkeeping line-up for the rest of the season in the light of Poynton’s injury setback. Tickets, Memberships and Six Packs for the 2014 season are on sale now. Click here to find out more >>
