22 days ago, Gez sustained an injury to his right knee when tackled during the game against Dartford. At 2 weeks post injury, Gez returned to gentle training and has since been able to run, but experienced significant pain when attempting to change direction.

Stuart Douglas, club physiotherapist, was understandably concerned that the knee was not recovering as expected and the club arranged for an MRI scan which showed a cruciate ligament injury. Earlier today, a specialist orthopaedic surgeon reviewed the scan, which has unfortunately revealed a separate and much more serious injury, which if not treated quickly, could be career threatening.

The board has therefore moved immediately to authorise the funding of treatment, which will involve two operations; the first of which will take place on Monday.

Sadly, it is likely to be at least 12 months before Gez can return to professional football.

As you can imagine, medical expenses are likely to amount to several thousand pounds and in the near future the club will be arranging several fund raising events as well as inviting donations and contributions.

Meanwhile, everyone at the club will want to join the board in sending Gez all good wishes for a successful outcome and full recovery.
