Ipswich Town defender Harry Clarke reveals he has undergone surgery after promotion to the Premier League





Ipswich Town defender Harry Clarke revealed he has undergone surgery on both Achilles tendons but believes it was a ‘successful operation’.

The 23-year-old, who played 35 times during the Blues’ promotion-winning campaign to the Premier League, posted on his Instagram and X accounts that he has been suffering with ‘Achilles issues’ for the past two seasons.

The boyhood Town fan did not play any minutes in Kieran McKenna’s side’s final two matches of the campaign, but was involved in the matchday squad against Huddersfield on the final day of the season.

In the social media post, he wrote: “As the people closest to me know, the last two seasons I’ve struggled with some pretty bad Achilles issues.

“Never did I think during the rough times in each season that we would do back-to-back promotions and I would be a big part of that.

“After countless injections and trying everything available to me, surgery was the last option.

“I can’t thank Dr. Calder enough for doing what seems to be a successful operation on such short notice.

“Road to recovery and to the Premier League starts now.”
