Manor head coach gutted to see Sheppard suffer broken foot

Eton Manor will be without centre Nick Sheppard for much of the 2018/19 campaign after he suffered a broken foot during last weekend’s 45-17 win over Fullerians in the London One North.
The club revealed the news earlier this week and head coach Jamie Connors provided an update on the influential player.
He said: “We are pretty gutted for him and it will be tough. He has badly broken a bone at the top of his foot, so one of the metatarsals.
“He has had an operation and has had a number of pins and plates put in there, which obviously isn’t great.
“The operation did go well though, and the prognosis seems quite good and he will probably be able to get back at some stage.
“Unfortunately it will mean he misses a big chunk of time and probably most of the season for us, so that’s really disappointing.”
