David Murphy: Northants wicketkeeper faces layoff after back surgery

David Murphy
Murphy's has scored 89 runs this season in six matches.

Northants wicketkeeper David Murphy will miss what the club describe as "a large chunk" of the season because of a lower back injury.

The Scotland international, 27, had an operation last week to repair a disc.

It is hoped that Murphy may be able to return to action in August.

"Despite putting a lot of work in over pre-season, once the season started, things began to deteriorate slightly and I've just not been able to play", he told the club website.
