Central midfielder, Mark Molesley, has gone under the surgeons knife to repair deamge to a stress frature in his left foot. There was hope that an operation could be avoided with him wearing an air cast boot over the injury, but that has failed to rectify the problem, leaving surgery as the only option.
Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Molesley is quoted as saying: "There is a little glimmer of hope but it’s not great. That’s why I haven’t had it already. I could’ve had it straight away but have tried every way to avoid it, but I’ve got to bite the bullet now. I tried the boot, crutches, and this and that, but I’ve run out of options so I’m going to have to have the operation. This is my lowest point in football because it has followed my biggest high. We stayed up last season and now we’re sitting at the top of the league after a good start. I’m going from the best football has ever been for me and now it’s not there – and there’s nothing I can do about it".
