Jenks shoulders the burden (literally)

Jenks shoulders the burden (literally)

The uncompromised, unrelenting rough and tumble of Championship life has finally taken it`s toll on the inexperienced frame of Watford`s rookie midfielder Ross Jenkins.

The Hornets engine room regular only turned pro in the summer and wasn`t expected to last the pace but the apprentice has been in such sparkling form (and the Hornets have been short on cover at times) that Brendan Rodgers has been reluctant to give the youngster a rest.

He`s even seen off the experienced heads of the likes of John Eustace and Lee Williamson such has been his rise to stardom…

Now after a grueling schedule of 38 league games on legs not used to the unforgiving pace of first team action, Jenkins has cracked and he will have to spend some quality time with medical guru Andy Rolls and his magic sponge.

After seeing his 18 year old midfielder hobble off at the Ricoh Arena, Rodgers told the official site "Ross has a dislocated shoulder which is disappointing as he`a boy who has done well, is strong and works hard"

And the gaffer added "I hope he will recover quickly as he has produced some wonderful football".

You`re not wrong Brendan, the lad Jenkins has been the find of the season at the Vic and should be off the treatment table to walk away with a well deserved 'Young Player of the Season` Award next Sunday…

….though we know a rookie keeper who may have a thing or 2 to say about that!

He has done really well, and is a true asset to the club, would like to see him have a few more shots on goal, but a future star for sure

First and foremost we have to remember that this is his first ever season so to play near on 40 games is staggering.... Clearly for me he has been the find of the season & we will do well to hold on to him for the next few seasons.
