Yeovil Town striker Alex Fisher has said he’s aiming for a return to action in early 2024.

Speaking to the ‘My New Football Club‘ podcast, run by Exeter City fans Jon Beer and actor David Earl, he goes into incredible detail about his double leg break suffered live on BT Sport against Southend United in early April.

In a wide-ranging chat, he talks (in eye watering detail) about the moment it happened, how he had a three hour (!) wait in the Glovers’ physio room waiting for an ambulance and how his rehab is going.

Fisher remains under contract with the Glovers, but it might be the turn of the year before we see him at Huish Park scoring goals again.

On a possible return he said: “Given how bone grows and how it’s so different from person to person, the difference from when you could be back to when the worst case scenario is can be quite big, so, i’m budgeting for January.

It’ll be October or September when I have the frame off, then it’ll be two more months to get – I can run, but because of the holes that are left from where the pins have been, I’ll be able to run, to do loads of stuff, but if I got hit on it, it wouldn’t have the same structural strength, because of where the pins have been.

So I’ve got to wait for them to completely heal…

The striker scored 5 goals in 38 games for the Glovers through the 2022/23 season.

Get well soon, Fish, see you in the new year!

The full Podcast is nearly two hours long, but is well worth your time…..
