Reserve Player Adam Phillip Suffers Major Knee Injury, Out 6-9 Months

Bad news on the reserves front, where Adam Phillip has just gone down with a serious injury:

Had a horrible landing today in training and have just found out I've done my cruciate and medial ligaments and I'm out for 6-9 months :(less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

Phillip, 20, would have been hoping for a big year after a string of injuries had seen him missing time in each of the last few seasons. At his age, and with his ability, it was about time for Phillip to be heading out on loan somewhere. Alas, that's not going to happen now, and it looks like yet another wasted year from the promising striker. Hopefully it's more like six months than nine and he can salvage something out of it, but this really sucks.

Get well soon, Adam!
