LACEY TARGETS MARCH RETURN
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
Tuesday, February 23, 2010
FC Lyn goalkeeper Tyrel Lacey says he expects to be back on the field at the beginning of March and in time for the 2010 1. Division season.

A torn meniscus in his right knee caused Lacey to miss the final two matches of Lyn's season which ended in relegation from the Eliteserien.

After spending his offseason recovering back home in his home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Lacey says that he is chomping at the bit to once again man the pipes for the Norwegian club.

"I returned to Oslo on the first of February and I'm now in the gym focusing on strengthening and a healthy return," Lacey recently told YA.

The former University of Tulsa standout joined Lyn last August after impressing in a friendly versus English giants Liverpool.

However the efforts by the young netminder were not enough to save Lyn from a last place finish in the Eliteserien.

The club has also been rocked by rumors of bankruptcy which have been temporarily resolved heading into their 2010 campaign.

No matter what the situation may be off the field, Lacey clealy states that his attention is focused on returning to action.

"I am feeling great and my body is responding very quickly. I greatly look forward to my return to the [field] in the first of March. It can't come soon enough as well as the continued success of my career abroad," he concluded.

Lacey and Lyn begin their 2010 1. Division season on the road when they travel to Bodo/Glimt.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
