Speaking to www.wokingfc.co.uk and the Woking FC matchday programme, Jon Boardman spoke of his disappointment at the recurrence of his injury which, Graham Baker confirmed today, will require an operation to fully resolve.
â€˜I was struggling with a groin injury last year [at Dagenham & Redbridge] and which we couldnâ€™t get to the bottom of. As it turned out, I ended up having an operation just before Christmas last year.â€™
â€˜It sorted the problem out towards the back-end of last season. I was back in training for three weeks and was encouraged that it was getting better.â€™
Jon played a reserve game at Dagenham & Redbridge, trying to regain fitness, before making his Kingfield return on 2 June this year.
â€˜Unfortunately, Iâ€™ve come back here, done the first three weeks of pre-season and itâ€™s flared up again, which is disappointing ... I need to see a specialist to check out whatâ€™s happening.â€™
Jon will now miss the first game of the season at Welling, which is now just 10 days away. He does, however, hope to back at some point in September and link up with Tom Hutchinson in the centre of the Cardsâ€™ defence.
â€˜Itâ€™s a long old season and Iâ€™ll definitely be back as soon as I can. Iâ€™m looking forward to getting back to playing again, but Iâ€™m not too sure when it will be now.â€™
The full interview with Jon will be in an early season matchday programme. Donâ€™t forget to buy your copy!
