LOCKDOWN BENEFITS FOR TRISTAN

27 July 2020

"I think it was actually a blessing in disguise for me as I haven’t missed out on any football and it has given me an extra three or four months to get my ankle right"

Tristan Nydam is targeting a return to match action in October or November as he continues his recovery from injury.

The 20-year-old missed the entire 2019/20 campaign after suffering a fractured ankle and ligament damage during a pre-season friendly with Notts County at Meadow Lane just over a year ago.

Town have begun the build-up to the new campaign with pre-season now underway at Playford Road and the midfielder is back working with the Club physios.

“My ankle feels so much better than what it did before lockdown,” Tristan told the Club website.

“Due to the restrictions in place, I haven’t been able to use the gym so I’ve been working in the dome with the physios.

"It’s been a tough time but I've tried to stay positive. I think lockdown was actually a blessing in disguise for me as I haven’t missed out on any football and it has given me an extra three or four months to get my ankle right.

“With the league starting a month later than usual, it gives me more time to get back in the swing of things. I hope to be back on the grass by then though I’m not sure if that will be full training as it might be a bit too soon.

“I’ll be hoping to play some sort of games, whether that is 23s or first-team by October-November time.”
