Reid was stretchered off in the 15th minute of the Fenmen’s UCL Knock Out Cup success, with the club later confirming he had suffered a double break in his left leg.

The midfielder has scored two goals this season, including a stunning strike in the Fenmen’s 2-2 draw with Deeping Rangers in November, and now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery today (January 18).

Wisbech progressed into the semi-finals of the cup thanks to a brace apiece from Billy Smith and Adam Millson.
