This is the new Ipswich Town medical centre, opened this week to cope with unprecedented numbers of injuries.
The squad is being decimated by one injury after another, with midfielder Cole Skuse the latest to be out for three months with a freak knee injury.
The unit at Town’s Playford Road training ground fits 30 beds with a nursing station. It is already full.
Our exclusive picture shows striker James Norwood in the first bed on the left, with new injury worry Cole Skuse next to him.
Ipswich’s injury list is getting a little silly now:
- Cole Skuse, knee, three months
- James Norwood, hamstring, seven weeks
- Stephen Ward, Achilles, one week
- Flynn Downs, knee, two months
- Kane Vincent-Young, Achilles, two months
- Tristan Nydam, ankle, two months
- Aaron Drinan, thigh, two months
- Ben Morris, knee, out for the season
- Luke Woolfenden, groin, just back to training
- Kayden Jackson, groin, just back to training
Sporting medical expert Lorraine Fisher, 34, “Ipswich seem to be having a spot of bad luck with injuries.
“It is good to see club owner Marcus Evans has invested in this hospital wing at the training ground to look after the poor players.”
