    Even better news about GEORGE THORNE -

    Derby County midfielder George Thorne made a goalscoring return to Pride Park
    Stadium on Friday night. Thorne was on target as the Rams' under-23 side beat
    Sunderland 2-0 in Premier League Two Division One.

    It was the 24-year-old's first appearance at Pride Park since breaking his leg more
    than 15 months ago. Thorne is building up his fitness and got through 75 minutes
    against Sunderland, having played the first half of the 2-0 defeat at Chelsea seven
    days earlier.

    He struck in the 31st minute, drilling a crisp low shot into the bottom corner of the
    net from outside the box. "It was a brilliant finish - and that's what you get with the
    quality of somebody like George," said under-23 boss Darren Wassall. "He's just
    coming back to fitness but he showed you never lose your ability - it was a class
    touch on the edge of the box, he was composed, took his time and it was a
    fantastic finish.

    Pleased to see GT is getting closer to full fitness, but it's a bit worrying to see Darren Wassall is involved. It was his stupid decision to risk GT in that meaningless end of season game against Ipswich that made it possible for him to get his injury.
