Ronnie Henry was ‘very ill’ from infection, but could be back this weekend

Ronnie Henry could be in line for a return to first team action after suffering from mumps which had spread to his testicles.

Henry returned to light training last week and could feature this Saturday for Stevenage when they travel to Dagenham & Redbridge.

The club’s sports therapist Paul Dando said: “He took a week to overcome the first stage but the virus spread to his testicles and he became very ill at around 10 days post infection.

“He was able to return to light training [last week] but it will take some time for him to regain his fitness levels and be able to play at the required level.
