Waterford goalkeeper Aaron Beresford dislocated his knee in club training last week just a month before the Munster championship clash with Clare in Ennis. He was on crutches at the Ballinacourty-Brickey Rangers match on Sunday night.
Courty boss Peter Queally explained what happened. “Unfortunately, we had an unsavoury sight at training on Friday night where we had an ambulance in the field. Aaron dislocated his knee so an ambulance crew had to pop it back in and bring him down. After the scans and x-rays, there’s nothing broken. He’ll see a specialist in the coming week. Hopefully the news won’t be too bad for him and for us.”
Beresford made his league debut against Wicklow in January and started six of the seven Division 4 fixtures. Club mate Stephen Enright came in as emergency cover against Antrim, after stepping back from the inter county scene earlier in the year. Gaultier’s David Whitty might be in line for his championship debut in Cusack Park after getting the nod away to Leitrim in the last round of the league.
