INJURY BLOW FOR WINGER CROOKES

By Matt Holden | 09/01/2014

Hull FC have confirmed that Jason Crookes is likely to be sidelined for at least four months after injuring his shoulder in training.

The former Bradford Bulls player had just returned from a wrist operation and was pushing hard for a place on the wing in Lee Radford's new look side until suffering the injury last week.

After tests couldn't reveal the true extent of his injury, the 23-year-old now faces surgery next week before a full prognosis can be made ahead of his rehabilitation.

Head coach Radford is disappointed for Crookes having seen him work extremely hard so far in pre-season.

"It's a real shame for him because I know he was looking forward to the start of the season," he said.

"To suffer the injury so soon after his wrist operation and before the season starts is very cruel but it is part and parcel of our game and he'll be well looked after by our medical department."

He added, "It means we are now one down when it comes to filling our wing spot and that will mean another player now has the opportunity to step up and jump into that role."

Radford begins his tenure as coach on Sunday when Hull FC head to Doncaster for their opening pre-season friendly of 2014.

A number of first-team regulars are expected to be given an early run out including the likes of Joe Arundel, Kirk Yeaman and Jacob Miller, whilst a host of the club's next generation of stars will also have the chance to show what they can do.

Tickets are available on the day at the Keepmoat Stadium with adult tickets £10, concession tickets £8 and junior tickets £3.
