Former Scunthorpe United and Grimsby Town player Connor Jennings diagnosed with rare cancer
Connor Jennings, who played for Scunthorpe United from 2012 to 2014 and Grimsby Town from early 2014 until the end of that season, has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
Stockport County FC – Connor’s current club – have issued a statement regarding the matter.
The statement reads: “Connor had been suffering from pain in his shoulder for several months after a fall in training and following physio treatment was referred for MRI scans to investigate.
“It was during these scans that a suspected tumour was located within his upper arm. Following subsequent biopsies, this has been confirmed as low-grade chondroid sarcoma which is a rare type of cancer.
“Although the treatment plan and timings are still being discussed with medical experts, chondroid sarcoma can only be treated through surgery, with a good success rate.
“The Club are working with Connor to ensure he gets all the support he needs during this difficult period through to his recovery.
“In the meantime, Connor continues to be around his team mates at Carrington, staying fit and strong, and supporting the club in all its games and activities.”
The football club are asking for any messages of support for Connor Jennings to be emailed to [email protected].
