Treleaven return boosts Borough
Ross Treleaven could be about to offer Eastbourne Borough some respite from their injury woes.
Borough have been blighted by a succession of injuries during pre-season and new signing Gary Hart is the latest to join the list.
Seven players missed last Saturday’s friendly win against Hayes and Yeading due to injury, two others played despite not having trained that week due to knocks and Matt Langston, who is out of contract but still in the club’s thoughts, remains a long-term victim.
Hart suffered a shoulder and back injury while landing awkwardly against Hayes which certainly rules him out of tonight’s friendly at Bognor but it is not all bad news.
Ben Watson and Gary Elphick returned to light training this week while Treleaven is on the verge of a comeback from the hamstring problems which have ruled him out since last September.
The young forward began last season superbly but was ruled out by a hamstring injury and then suffered a recurrence of the problem which sidelined him for the remainder of the campaign.
He signed a new contract in the summer and Borough are hopeful he could be involved again as early as next Tuesday’s friendly against Eastbourne Town or Matt Crabb’s testimonial match against Braintree on August 6.
Head coach Nick Greenwood said: “Ross has been doing intensive strength and conditioning rehab work and things are going really well. He is nearer and nearer to being involved again.
“He has been working incredibly hard. He has been doing one-to-one work with a conditioning expert at the University of Sussex and it is encouraging.
“If we can get him back on the park that will be a major boost to us all. Hopefully he will be back involved in the next week or so.”
