Jon Flanagan gets 30 minutes under his belt

Liverpool defender Jon Flanagan got 30 minutes of playing time under his belt today as he continues to make his comeback from injury.

The 22-year-old hasn’t played competitively for the Reds since the final day of the 2013-14 season due to knee problems.

Flanagan played 30 minutes, which was the scheduled time he was due to play, for the Liverpool Under-21s in a friendly against Fleetwood at the Kirkby Academy, a fortnight after returning to full training at Melwood.

He had figured in a friendly with Brondby in July 2014 and then in a charity game at Anfield back in March but ongoing problems resulted in him going under the knife in September 2014 and April 2015.

Flanagan signed a new one-year contract back in May and although he is free to negotiate with non-English clubs from January 1st, he will be hoping to prove his fitness to earn a new extension.
