Injury Blow Confirmed
Jim McAlister sustained a fractured tibia during yesterday's 1-1 draw with Colchester United, the club can confirm.
The midfielder, who was rushed to hospital for scans on the injury, doesn't require surgery at this stage and is now resting up at home with his right leg in a cast for safe healing.
A full timescale on his recovery will be announced in due course.
Jim and his family would like to place on record their thanks to club physio Phil Horner, club doctor Dominic O'Dowd and the doctors, nurses and paramedics who provided medical assistance yesterday.
They would also like to thank those who have been in contact to pass on their best wishes, including Colchester United midfielder Sean Murray, who has apologised for the tackle which led to the injury.
