Newton Aycliffe goalkeeper Adam Pickford gave an update on his recovery from injury, insisting there is still ‘no timeframe’ on his return to full fitness.
Pickford has been a mainstay in Colin Stromsoy’s side this season but was forced off midway through the second half of the Ebac Northern League Division One defeat against Consett at the Beaumont Landscapes Stadium in late-October.
The Aycliffe number one appeared to tweak his knee while attempting to save Luke Carr’s penalty, and despite trying his best, was unable to continue.
“I’m enjoying the break,” said Pickford.
“It’s giving me the chance to really focus on my rehab and get any further opinions on the injury I might need.”
