Scunthorpe defender Lee Ridley will miss the start of the season.Scunthorpe United have suffered a blow with the news that defender Lee Ridley will miss the start of the season.
The full back has been sidelined for eight weeks after learning he needs surgery on a hernia.
"Lee has a minor hernia which needs to be operated on and we have an indication of him being out of action between six and eight weeks," Iron boss Brian Laws told the club's website.
"We were disappointed for Lee because he's had a fantastic season last year and he's going to be disappointed because he will miss two weeks of the next season.
"But knowing Lee, he will be fighting and raring to get back in as soon as possible."
