KERRY LOOK SET to have to plan without their team captain for next Saturday’s EirGrid All-Ireland U21 football semi-final against Galway.
Corner-back Brian Sugrue came off due to injury in the early stages of the first half against Cork in the Munster final.
Manager Jack O’Connor confirmed the serious nature of the injury that the Renard man had incurred.
“Yeah it looks like Brian Sugrue is in trouble,” O’Connor told Radio Kerry Sport.
“He dislocated his kneecap and it’s very hard luck on him because he got a similar injury last year in the Munster semi-final. It’s just tough on the lad now, being captain and all.”
“That’s the way it goes. That’s sport. Hopefully he’ll recover from it and get back before too long.”
Sugrue’s unavailability could open the door for Austin Stacks player Jack Morgan, who came on for him in the Munster decider, to deputise while Kerins O’Rahilly’s Cormac Coffey may be another defensive option.
Throw-in at Cusack Park in Ennis next Saturday afternoon is 4.30pm.
