ESSEX seamer Andrew McGarry is likely to miss the rest of the season after sustaining a hand injury on day one of the current LV County Championship match against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge.

The 25-year-old picked up the injury during his third over in the Nottinghamshire first innings when attempting to field a straight drive from batsman Mark Wagh.

The injury is a blow not only for Essex but also Suffolk, for whom McGarry has regularly played Minor Counties cricket since making his debut in 2004, and club side Bury St Edmunds.

Essex Physio Mark Thomas revealed yesterday: “Andrew McGarry sustained an impact injury to his right hand yesterday afternoon. An X-ray today has revealed a spiral displaced fracture of his fifth Metacarpal of his right-hand. This will likely require surgery and Andrew will hopefully have this performed in London in the next day or two. As a result he is unlikely to play again this season.”
