SHRIMPS skipper Barry Roche has returned to full training after a successful wrist operation.
The 36-year-old stopper hasn't featured for the Shrimps since the 1-1 draw versus Newport County at Rodney Parade in October but returned to full training today and the 6'4" Irishman said he was "delighted to be back."
He added "It's been brilliant today because it's been a while since the lads have been on grass together because of the weather, they've spent the majority of the past few months on the astroturf so we had a really good session.
"It was hard work because I've been out for so long but it was excellent to be back out there.
"I'm absolutely over the moon, it feels like it's been a long long time since I've been out there with the lads and it's been really frustrating.
"Obviously I picked up a thigh injury at Newport and that ruled me out for five weeks and then as I was returning from that my wrist went.
"Nobody could get to the bottom of what was going on with my wrist, I had two scans, two or three injections and nothing seemed to work.
"I ended up seeing a specialist who I believe is the main man in the country for wrist and hand injuries, I had it operated on and thankfully it's worked out.
