Purches Away For Recovery

Last updated : 02 November 2004 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
Purches has been sent to the FA Centre at Lilleshall in an attempt to help him overcome his ankle problems, which has kept him out of the first team for most of the season - only making a brief appearance at Brentford at the beginning of September.

Speaking to the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Sean O'Driscoll is quoted as saying that: "At Lilleshall, they will push him on a little bit .... it's full-time treatment, 24 hours almost, so he'll get some good fitness work in as well as strengthening his ankle. Hopefully he'll be back in full-time training next week".
