Beardsley on road to recovery

Boro striker out for three months due to shoulder injury

STEVENAGE striker Chris Beardsley is out of action for the best part of three months following surgery on his shoulder.

The striker, who was injured in the club’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy match against Brentford in September, had an operation two weeks ago after it was realised that the damage to his dislocated shoulder was worse than first thought and he had tears to his cartilage, capsule and biceps tendon.

Speaking this week about his injury, Beardsley told The Comet: “I had the operation two weeks ago.

“The damage was more than we thought...and surgery was the best way to manage it.

“I’m in a sling for four weeks, for most of the time but I can take it off now and then. It’s very restrictive movement-wise but there is no pain.

“Basically I’ve got to keep myself ticking over until I’m out of the sling but I can do bike work and leg weights.
