Former Ludlow flanker Chris Harris returns after long injury lay-off
Updated 5:54pm Friday 17th January 2014 in Sport
FORMER Ludlow flanker Chris Harris hopes to have put his injury problems behind him after making his comeback after around 11 months on the sidelines.
Harris, who now plays for Luctonians, suffered concussion in a match against Stourbridge last season.
He came off the bench last Saturday as Luctonians thrashed struggling Dudley Kingswinford 72-0 in National League Two North.
Former Cleobury player Paul Hulland touched down for a Luctonians side which included Tenbury-based Alex and Ben James and ex-Ludlow player Mike Jones.
"I must have been out for about 11 months," said Harris.
“It’s been pretty frustrating. I feel fine now so I am glad to be back out there.
"My last outing had been at Birmingham and Solihull last term. It will be good to get back up to that ground and get back into it “I suffered concussion playing away at Stourbridge last season.
“I played through the season after taking painkillers but then I was struggling in pre-season and went to see the specialist.
“When I went to see the neurologist, originally, I thought it would be curtains.
"I had done quite a bit of damage so I am on medication for the next six months.
“I have been training for the last month and, hopefully, things look to be on the up.”
