On his decision to quit professional football as far as playing is concerned, Ryan Garry is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "Like anyone would, I tried everything I could to come back. But the only option that was given to me was a nerve block and, medically, there was no one out there that thought that was a good idea. I had to have a good, long think about my short, medium and long-term health and that was the decision I had to make. It was the sensible decision because it was too risky to have the injection and there was no guarantee it would work or how long it might work for. It wasn’t an injection I could take lightly. It was quite a major injection and it was too risky".
