Gloucester City Queens are sad to announce star forward and Irish International, Maura Fitzpatrick, has been ruled out for the season. The knee injury, sustained on International duty was worse than first feared and will result in a lengthy spell on the side-lines.
Gloucester City Queens Head Coach, Jay Marriott said:
"This is devastating news first and foremost for Maura who has been having an unbelievable season with us culminating in her first International call-up, with which I know she was immensely proud. It was clear to see just how important Maura has been for us, our star player, our leader and talisman. It's my belief by seasons end that she would have been in the running for MVP of the league. Personally I've really enjoyed working with Maura, she's the ultimate pro on the court and a great sense of humour off the court. I wish her a speedy recovery and would love to see her in a Queens jersey again in the future."
Queens Forward, Maura Fitzpatrick said:
"We all hoped it was just a minor injury so it's a bummer it's worse. I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to play in the city of Gloucester and to have been part of a new franchise."
