Skard given clearance to begin Town career

Last updated : 03 January 2006 By Russell Claydon
The Norweigan midfielder was signed on a free transfer and it was hoped that he could be given clearance to play before the transfer window but due to a groin injury and complications in receiving clearance before January, Skard was unable to start his Town career.

However, the midfielder, who is currently making good progress after groin surgery has now officially recieved clearance from both countries to embark upon his career with the Blues.

It is thought that Royle will want him to come through a few reserve matches to get himself up to Championship pace but the boss has already commented on the players exceptionally high fitness levels and it might not be long before he is given his debut in a Town shirt.
