Tottenham Hotspur are having a stellar 2015-16 campaign. Stevenage FC, not so much. For those of you scoring at home, The Boro sit in 21st place in England's League Two, just seven points clear of relegation. Their troubled campaign just got worse. After sacking Teddy Sheringham last month, Spurs young defender Connor Ogilvie, who has the sixth most appearances for the club this season, has gone down for the year.
"On-loan Spurs defender Connor Ogilvie is out for the season after sustaining a bad injury in training."
"Connor has torn away a ligament from the ankle bone. It was on the training ground. So this week, Connor, Dave McAllister, Jake Mulraney and Ronnie Henry at half-time."
Ogilvie joined The Boro this past August and has impressed. He has been a cog in the Stevenage's first team and has had his loan extended twice already. The 20 year old left-back, who can deputize at center-back as well, has played in twenty-four matches this season, with 21 of those coming in the league. Ogilvie has also been capped by England at the U-16 ad U-17 levels. While this is disappointing news, Ogilvie should gain confidence after a solid loan spell. Best of luck in recovery Connor!
On a side note, as Spurs do a decent amount of loan business with Stevenage, what might happen if this staple of lower league English football is relegated you may ask? Well, Stevenage would move down to the National League, comprised of both professional and semi-professional players. Not a good look for the club. For their sake, COYS...B.
