Ferley to undergo knee surgery

Tuesday 2nd June 2009

KENT spin bowler Rob Ferley will undergo knee surgery on Friday, and should be back ready to play in four weeks time. The 27-year-old recently suffered a small tear on the anterior horn of his meniscus on his right knee.

Following an appointment with leading knee specialist Mr Chan Jeer, at Canterbury on Monday, it has been decided that he will undergo arthroscopic surgery on 5 June.

Assuming no further damage is found during the scope, he should be back to full fitness in four weeks.

Commenting on the injury, Kent physio Nimmo Reid said: ‘Rob has suffered a small tear to the meniscus on his right knee. It is a fairly simple process to remove and he should be back in four weeks time – if all goes according to plan. It“s a fairly common injury, sustained by bowlers, and we expect him to make a swift recovery.“
