McGinty Fractures Metatarsal

Defender Sean McGinty suffered a fractured metatarsal in last weekend’s friendly against Basingstoke Town and will be out for up to six weeks.

McGinty fractured his 5th metatarsal – a long bone on the outside of the foot which connects to the little toe – towards the end of the game at the Soccer AM Stadium but managed to complete the 90 minutes.

Sean has already begun his rehabilitation with Russ Clash, The Shots’ Head of Medical and Sport Science, and continues to work on upper-body strength. He will visit a Specialist on Friday to learn of a possible reduction in his recovery period.

McGinty will also use barometric oxygen therapy chambers at Guildford’s Samson Centre, the home of the Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Group, to aid his recovery. The pressurised chambers are able to give the body ten times its normal level of oxygen through an increase in red blood cells, which particularly promotes rehabilitation from bone fractures.

We wish Sean well in his return to full fitness.
