LATROBE import James Regan is unlikely to play again this season after sustaining a wrist injury.
The injury flared up while batting during yesterday’s Adye’s Angels charity cricket match at Latrobe.
The Englishman left the field and went to the nearby Mersey Community Hospital for treatment.
He returned to the venue with his left wrist strapped.
The Somerset-contracted wicketkeeper-batsman will wait on tests this week to confirm the exact nature of the injury.
“It hasn’t been confirmed,” Regan said yesterday.
“I’ll have to see the specialist this week.”
But he added that rest was likely to be the best cure.
And with the county club paying his wages, the 18-year-old’s status for the rest of the Cricket North West season is in jeopardy.
Regan had been scheduled to return to the UK in late February but that date may be brought forward.
It is a major blow to Latrobe’s CNW premiership chances – Regan, a top-order batsman, had been a vital ingredient in the Demons’ Twenty20 tournament success.
He has also represented the Coast in a CNW under-25 representative side that played the state under-19 team.
He has played nine games for Somerset’s second XI , as well as making his first-class debut in March.
