Weatherson Not Over Injury

Peter Weatherson has missed the first week of pre-season training after the pelvic injury he was carrying towards the end of last season failed to clear up over the summer.

The 30-year-old suffered from an inflamed pubic bone - osteitis pubis - and a related abductor strain for much of last season but put off an operation to try and play his part in the team's relegation battle. However, towards the end of the season it was obvious that he could no longer continue and he sat out the last two games against Ross County and Ayr United.

Originally, the plan was for Peter to have an operation to correct the problem, but he was then told that rest was the cure. But this has not worked as hoped and Weatherson has missed the first week of pre-season training, according to the Greenock Telegraph's Chris Tait.

"The rest I was told to do hasn't really worked as well as we all thought it would," Weatherson told Tait. "I've been going to see the physio Paul Kelly every day and we're going to see the specialist again to see if he can determine if there is anything else wrong.

"The initial problem hasn't really deteriorated, so I'll maybe miss the first week of pre-season training."
