Zimbabwe Warriors and Plymouth Argyle left-back Brendan Galloway is set to be back in training with the rest of the team at the beginning of the preseason after recovering from a long-term injury
The 26-year-old former Everton defender has been on the sidelines since tearing his pattela tendon in November 2021 in a 3-0 loss against Wycombe Wanderers.
Pilgrims boss Steve Schumacher confirmed the good news that the Zimbabwean is making progress in his rehabilitation and will be available at the start of the new season.
“Brendan is moving really well. He’s progressing, he has been on the AlterG (anti gravity) running machine and hopefully he’s on track because it will be good to have him back,” said Schumacher in a PlymouthLive report
The Argyle players are currently on off season after finishing seventh on the league one log table and they are scheduled to return back on the 21st of June for preseason camp.
Galloway joined the Pilgrims in June 2021 after an injury hit spell at Luton Town. He was initially given a one year contract, but has since seen his deal extended to the end of 2021/22 season after a stellar performance for the club featuring 16 times- 14 starts and two substitutes before his knee injury.
The former England juniors international is looking forward to the new season and hoping to boost the team in the new campaign.
His return is good news for Zimbabwe Warriors if their ban is lifted before the 16 of May as they are scheduled to play South Africa, Liberia and Morocco in the group K of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The Zimbabwean has featured 21 times for Everton, including 17 premier league appearances after joining from MK Dons in 2014.
