David Healy - “major disappointing injury news”

Posted : 28th January 2019

David Healy reveals hugely disappointing injury news for Roy Carroll.

“It is with a major feeling of disappointment that I want to advise our supporters that initial scan results following the recent Seaview game have revealed that Roy Carroll has sustained a serious cruciate injury that will rule him out for the rest of the season.

We are all so sorry for Roy who has been such a positive influence on and off the pitch and I know how popular he is with our supporters who I know will be greatly saddened by this news.

However, injuries and suspensions are part and parcel of the game and this major setback will bring our squad even closer together as we face up to a huge schedule of busy and important fixtures in the coming weeks and months.

Injuries always provide opportunities to others and I have every faith in young Gareth Deane who has played in a significant number of big games in our first team. He got his chance at Newry last week and again in tonight’s Big Two Derby.

In the next couple of days we will look to bring in an additional goalkeeper to maintain competition levels within the squad over the remainder of the season.”
