Uk news Chris Erskine out for the season, confirms East Kilbride boss Stevie Aitken PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - The midfielder may even face a race against time to be fit for the start of next season
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! East Kilbride boss Stevie Aitken has confirmed that midfield ace Chris Erskine is out for the rest of this season. Erskine was out on loan at former club Partick Thistle but pulled up with a hamstring injury during their 2-2 draw with Forfar Athletic last Tuesday. The injury diagnosis is quite severe and Aitken hopes his star player makes it back in time for pre-season training in June. Aitken said: “We knew last week that he had done a bit of damage on his hamstring and had gone for a scan to see what the result was going to be, but it didn’t look too good at the time. “It’s disappointing for him as well, because it’s a club he has a lot of time for and has fond memories of. To go back there and try and help them out was something he was looking forward to. “We were looking forward to him getting game-time as well, so it’s disappointing, but these things happen.

. “Chris will rest up, do all the rehab, and there aren’t a lot of games getting played now anyway, so it’s time to rest up and hopefully we can get him back for pre-season training, which will probably be about the middle of June.” Meanwhile, Aitken is getting good reports of players out on loan, like Lewis Kidd at Albion Rovers and Kyle Hutton at Cowdenbeath, and says everyone wins from the arrangement. He said: “It’s going to take a bit of time for all of the boys; these guys haven’t played competitive football since December sometime, but we’re getting reports back that the boys are doing well, and that was the whole reason they went out on loan.

“The next time we’ll get back together and train, and friendlies start maybe in July, you’re talking maybe six or seven months for the last time some people played football, and that’s a long time. “Players out getting game-time is certainly going to help me, and them. “When we get them back, I’m sure they will only be in a better place for it.”
