Simon Walton Hopes to Return By End of November

Selby Times - Crocked QPR ace Walton on road to recovery

INJURED football star Simon Walton is on the comeback trail and hopes to return to action for his new club Queens Park Rangers by the end of November.
The 19-year-old Sherburn midfielder (right) suffered a broken leg in a pre-season friendly against Fulham in August just weeks after sealing his £200,000 move across London from Charlton Athletic.
Simon successfully underwent surgery to repair his fractured fibia and is due to have a protective cast removed this week so he can kick-start his rehabilitation.
"He's itching to get back out onto the field," said Simon's dad Steve. "There's no problem with the leg although the wound itself has taken a bit longer to heal, which set him back a bit.
"Hopefully Simon can get back to work in the swimming pool this week. He's already been working with the weights to keep up his fitness." Simon, who has been guaranteed a starting spot at Loftus Road, impressed in a handful of friendlies playing in a new holding midfield role before suffering the injury overstretching to intercept a pass.
Steve added: "It's extremely frustrating for Simon, but he's a strong character and never lets his head go down. It's a long road to recovery, but if all goes to plan, he should be back at some stage during November-"
