Treatment room merry-go-round

Sep 22, 2022

The revolving door to the treatment room at Balmoor has taken another spin with Max Gillies popping out for a return to action and Robbie McGale popping in for a spell on the side-lines.
On-loan Queen’s Park player Gillies is available for selection this weekend in the SPFL Trust Trophy game with Elgin City after the protocol period following the head injury he picked up in training last weekend when he was hit full in the face with a wayward ball was completed. Unfortunately, Robbie, who was a summer signing from the University of Stirling, suffered a dislocated shoulder on Tuesday and is now facing a period out with Blue Toon manager Jim McInally saying: “Robbie was taking part in a bounce game when he was injured. We had a physio present and the physio from Brechin City, who were training nearby, were both able to help Robbie quite quickly.” “It is a shame that this has happened to him so quickly into his Peterhead career as we saw at the weekend against Kelty when he came on as a substitute the pace and energy that he has. We are not sure how long he will be out for at the moment but I would reckon it would be a few weeks.”
