Jimmy out for the season after knee operation
Huddersfield Town striker Jimmy Spencer will miss the remainder of the 2012/13 season after undergoing surgery on his right knee.
The 21 year-old Academy graduate had an operation on Thursday to reattach the lateral collateral ligament that had come away from the bone.
Initial indications suggest a 12 week recovery period for the striker, in which the first half will be spent in a knee brace.
Having gained first team experience during loan spells at Northwich Victoria, Morecambe and Cheltenham Town during previous seasons, Jimmy made his Huddersfield Town debut during the season-opening Capital One Cup game at Preston North End in August. A League debut from the bench quickly followed at Cardiff City on the opening day of the League campaign.
He made a further two appearances during a loan spell at npower League 1 Brentford in October before signing a loan deal at Crawley Town in January, but this knee injury cut that short. After an extended period of rehabilitation Jimmy suffered a set-back on his return to training last week which resulted in the need for the operation.
Everyone at Huddersfield Town wishes Jimmy a speedy return to action.
