Keeper vows to bounce back

Created on 26/07/2010 @ 11:25


Former Berriew and Guilsfield goalkeeper Lee Andrew has vowed to bounce back from a horror pre-season injury that left him with a hole in his lung.
The 23 year-old stopper suffered a collision whilst on trial with Guilsfield against Newtown, resulting in fractured ribs and a pierced lung and doctors instructing him not to fly for at least seven months. The injury has left him breathless and in extreme discomfort.

But despite the grim prognosis, Andrew believes he can return to action before Christmas, with home town Llanfair his likely club.
“I was enjoying pre-season, and felt it was going well so this was a huge set-back,” he said. “I have to take it easy and be patient because if the hole gets any bigger it will become a punctured lung. But I am confident that I will be playing again in three or four months.”
Andrew’s long road to recovery will end with final x-rays before doctors give him the green light that the hole has been plugged, an ironic scenario considering that Andrew’s profession is a plumber!
