Baldwin Out For Season

Baldwin Out For Season

Colchester United centre-half Pat Baldwin has admitted he may struggle to play again this season after dislocating his shoulder last weekend.

This comes after a troublesome knee injury had kept him out since Christmas, but his injury-plagued season may well be over...

He told the EADT: 'It only lasted about four minutes. It was a straight dislocation of the shoulder, though hopefully there isn't much muscular or nerve damage.

'I jumped up with one of the West Brom lads, to meet a free-kick. I had a hand on his shoulder, and he took my arm and shoulder with him. It popped out and it was very painful.

'That just about sums up my luck this season, and also that of the team. I had worked so hard to get back from the knee injury, which took an age to heal,' Baldwin rued.

'I was out for nearly three months, which was frustrating. I might have tried to rush back once or twice too quickly, which was my fault rather than that of the physio. It was just over-eagerness on my part.

'Even just a basic dislocation means that I will probably be out for three or four weeks, which means that I might struggle to get back this season.

'I didn't miss many games last season. I played alongside Wayne Brown, and I was looking forward to forming a good partnership with Coyney (Chris Coyne) during the last few weeks. But that's football for you.

'The team didn't have many injuries last season, but perhaps the fact that we did so well last year has taken it out of us this year.'
