Paddy has operation
Paddy was still able to carry on for the remainder of last season but today (Thursday 29th May) he has had to have a operation on his knee.
Blackwell said:"It's been a bit of a niggling problem for Paddy and we thought that it would be an ideal time for him to have the issue sorted.
"The surgeon was planning on a clean and tidy and it should be three weeks before he can return to action - just in time for pre-season training."
Kenny should be available for the pre-season fixtures due to start in July.
