Like the rest of you, I’ve been keeping a close eye on the news today, with the Mayo News reporting that Keith Higgins was due to have an MRI scan on his knee this morning. Well, he did and Midwest are first out of the blocks with the extremely welcome news that he hasn’t damaged his cruciate. Quoting Johnno, Midwest say that Keith sustained a sprain of the medial ligament and while this is likely to mean that he won’t be back for the Cork match on April 11th, he should be back in action soon after. He could even be in contention for a place on the team in the league final, should we make it that far.
So, although the day began with the return of winter (there was snow in these parts for most of the morning and it’s still snowing in a half-hearted kind of way now), all of a sudden it has turned into a bright and cheerful afternoon.
