O’Brien Looks For New Year Boost

Mark O'Brien

Derby County Apprentice Mark O’Brien is hoping to return in the New Year following heart surgery.

The 16 year old defender recently underwent surgery on heart valves at Leicester’s Glenfield Hospital and now faces a three-month rest before resuming his promising career.

He has returned to Ireland for the time being but will return to Derby for check-ups and is hoping to be fit for a return early in 2010.

Speaking about his situation on the Club’s official website, O’Brien is positive that he will be able to put this setback behind him, sooner rather than later:

“I have to build it up to get stronger and stronger before eventually getting back into training and I can’t wait for that day to come,” he said.

“It sounds exactly like an injury and that is the way I’m treating it and I hope to back in the New Year. Roll on the New Year – it will be a completely new year for me.”
