Yeovil Town striker Alex Fisher has thanked the club’s medical staff and supporters for their messages of support after he suffered a season-ending injury.

The frontman was stretchered off just 12 minutes after arriving as a half-time substitute in Saturday’s 2-0 home defeat to Southend United with a suspected broken ankle.

He was taken to hospital following the incident which occurred after a collision with goalkeeper Collin Andeng-Ndi at Huish Park and posted on his Twitter account on Sunday that he hoped to be out “in the next couple of days.

Fisher said: “I am truly humbled by everyone who has reached out in the last 24 hours! Your messages of warmth and support have kept me going through a difficult time. I hope to be out of hospital in the next couple days with my focus turning to supporting the team and my recovery.

I must also say a massive thank you to all the medical staff that looked after me during this whole process, from all involved at @YTFC to the staff at Yeovil hospital and everyone in-between.

We are sure we echo the thoughts of all Glovers’ supporters when we wish Fish a speedy recovery.

Supporters and playing staff need to understand that medics/stretcher bearers take part in training that kicks in whenever there is an incident on the pitch. A calm manner, and resolute focus should not be mistaken for negligence or not caring. Those chaps know what to do.
