Tom Bayliss is set to undergo surgery next week on the ankle injury that has ruled him out for the remainder of the season.
Tom, who has enjoyed an excellent first season at Montgomery Waters Meadow, ruptured two ankle ligaments during our 3-1 win over Morecambe earlier this month.
He will now undergo surgery to have his ankle reconstructed - with manager Steve Cotterill confirming that the operation has been pencilled in to take place on Tuesday.
“Tom Bayliss went down to London and had his consultation on Tuesday.
“He has now been pencilled in for an operation next Tuesday (March 28) as that will hopefully give his ankle enough time to settle down.
“We are really pleased that he will be able to go for surgery relatively quickly and that he will be back raring to go in pre-season.
“Tom has had a very good first season for us having not played a lot of football over the past few years.
“He has been an influential figure on and off the pitch and we are looking forward to having him back next season.”
