Scan for Oldham new boy
Date published: 22 July 2014
OLDHAM new boy Adam Clay, who made his debut at York, will have a scan on Saturday to check out his suspect right ankle.
The club knew he wasn’t 100-per-cent-fit when they signed him on a short-term deal to the end of the season.
He can train and play, as he did at York with no apparent handicap, but both player and club want a medical report.
Scott Naylor’s plan was to hold him back until after the scan, but he was fast-tracked because Mo Agoro pulled out with a knee injury.
Clay (23) damaged the ankle last March when playing for North Wales Crusaders in a Challenge Cup tie against Pilkington Recs.
“Since I signed for Oldham I’ve been on rehab, and I’m feeling a lot better,” said Clay, who scored 12 tries in 27 games for Barrow last season before joining newly-promoted Crusaders for 2014.
“I’m not expecting the scan to throw up anything serious, but I need to know what’s going on.”
Providing he has suffered no adverse effects from the York game, he may be in line for his home debut against Hunslet Hawks at Whitebank on Sunday (3pm).
Also assessed tonight will be Agoro and hooker Kenny Hughes, who has an ankle injury.
