Colchester United captain Luke Prosser has been ruled out for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on a serious knee injury.
The 28-year-old defender has been a regular in the U's side since joining on a free transfer in the summer but will now have to sit out the remainder of the campaign.
The news following the surgery isn't what we all wanted to hear.
We were hoping that it was just something minor in the knee and the operation could clear it up for Luke to be back in a couple of weeks or so.
Sadly, that isn't the case and it looks likely that Luke will be out of action for the remainder of the season.
We will know more about the exact nature of the injury once I have spoken to the surgeon myself so we can't give exact timescales for his recovery at the moment.
Former Luton Town defender Paul Futcher has died at the age of 60.
He started his career with Chester before moving to the Hatters at the age of 17 along with twin brother Ron in 1974.
The ex-England Under-21 international became the most expensive defender in English football when he moved to Manchester City in 1978 for £350,000.
Hatters Chief Executive Gary Sweet remembers watching Futcher in his second season as a Luton Town supporter.
Paul was simply a class above. He joined in my second full season as a fan and became an instant hero of mine. He was up there with the very best I’ve ever seen play for the Club and has remained there. Paul was a silky, rock-steady defender who had such amazing technical ability and, more than anything, a cool-head that left thousands in awe. He will live long in the memory of anyone who saw him play.
Norwich City's Jacob Murphy has signed a new four-and-a-half year deal at the club.
The 21-year-old, who came up through the club's academy alongside his twin brother Josh, will stay at Carrow Road until 2021.
He's made 16 appearances for Norwich's first team this season. The first of those came at the start of August, when he scored in their 4-1 win at Blackburn Rovers.
I’m over the moon as it’s a big achievement for myself.
I’ve been here since I was 11, which is ten years now. I couldn’t be more happy to be signing for my boyhood club.
To get this deal done is just amazing for me. The path now is for me to continue my form and to improve as a player.

Cambridge United have asked Wycombe Wanderers to provide more details of alleged racist abuse after their striker Adebayo Akinfenwa highlighted it in tweets after the game.
Good 3pts 2day, great support again. It's a shame that a small group of Cambridge fans focus on colour rather than the game #KickOutRacism
Adebayo Akinfenwa says he's never had a problem with abuse on the pitch before.
I know mate only a small group of tasteless individuals I've never had a problem b4 https://t.co/cKXEi2UlgL

Ipswich Town have decided to end the loan spell of Everton winger Conor Grant early.
The 21-year-old joined on a season-long loan in the summer transfer window but has failed to make an impact at Portman Road.
Instead of seeing out the rest of the campaign in Suffolk, he will instead return to Goodison Park to feature for the Premier League club's under 23s side.
Grant made seven appearances for Ipswich.
I felt bad for Conor because he has come to us to play games and although he has had a few appearances, his time on the pitch has been limited.
The reality is that he was here to develop his game and that wasn’t happening because he wasn’t getting the time on the pitch he needs at his age.
