Franks goes under the knife

Paul Franks is aiming to be back to full fitness by Christmas after a successful ankle operation last week.

The Nottinghamshire all-rounder had to battle through the pain barrier during the season to deal with the problem and went under the knife to remove a floating piece of bone in his left ankle.

This should cure the problem and with a clear period in which to recover, the 28-year-old expects to be 100 per cent fit well before pre-season begins.

He said: The surgeon is confident that hes dealt with the problem. He did show me the piece of bone, which was the size of a small pebble - so I can now fully understand why my ankle hurt so much.

Its always nice to hear theres nothing untoward when you have an operation, so with a good period of rehabilitation, Ill be back up and running by the New Year.
