King's Lynn Town skipper Michael Clunan has fractured his right fibia and faces anything between six and ten weeks on the sidelines.
The long-serving midfielder had to be replaced after suffering the injury during the early stages of Saturday's FA Trophy clash against Dover Athletic at The Walks.
It's the second major injury setback that the Lynn-born playmaker has suffered in the last few seasons.
Back in 2018, Clunan missed the tail end of the campaign and the Southern League play-off final against Slough Town at The Walks after fracturing his metatarsal against Kettering Town.
Everyone at the club wishes Michael a speedy recovery.
Meanwhile, reserve team midfielder and future prospect Luke Johnson has joined Step 3 team Leiston on a months loan.
Director of Football Robbie Back said: "This is great opportunity for Luke for his development and will gain valuable experience at Leiston and I know Glen Driver (manager) will help his game.
"Luke has have a bright future ahead with club and we all wish him well."
Johnson recently signed a two-year deal with the club along with Joe Taylor.
Natty Stewart has returned to the club from his month loan with Leiston and featured for the reserves last week at Sudbury.
