Young striker Jamie Philpot has now undergone surgery on the knee injury he picked up in the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 18 year old came on to make his senior bow as a second half substitute and having scored in the game, he then came off a few minutes later with what was discovered from a tear to his knee cartilage.

Having now undergone surgery to repair the torn tissue, it will mean he is out for between ten to twelve weeks in total as he fully recovers so he may miss the first few weeks of the new campaign as he builds his fitness up again.

In quotes carried by the South London Press manager Neil Harris explained that the surgery went as well as could be expected, and following the surgery Philpot should return fitter than ever.

‘Jamie had to have the cartilage repaired but in the long-term he will be fitter, which is much better for him. It will add between three and four weeks to his recovery, so he will be out for between 10 and 12 weeks, which is pretty standard for that kind of operation. Hopefully, he will be fit by the back end of pre-season and can join the squad soon after.’
