Gold Coast United’s Brown cleared of any major damage
The 20-year old forward went down in the 1-0 pre-season friendly win over North Queensland Fury at Carrara Stadium and initial fears were that he sustained a break in the leg – the same one he broke in pre-season last year.
But fortunately for the club, Brown has been cleared of any serious damage which he was extremely relieved about.
“It’s only a grade one sprain caused by rolling my ankle when I went down on Sunday,” said Brown.
“I’ll be running on it again tomorrow and doing ball work early next week. It feels alright at the moment, so yes, it is a bit of relief to be honest, especially after what happened last season when I broke my leg.
“When I got injured last year I heard a bit of a noise and I heard something again on Sunday, so initially I was a bit worried. But as soon as I put a bit of weight on it and realised it wasn’t too bad I started to feel better straight away.
“I got ice on it immediately and did all the right things so hopefully it’ll clear up quickly.”
