Some interesting comments from Ben Godfrey in an interview with EFC Online:
“Not being able to compete, not having gameday, having what you love doing and what your whole routine revolves around taken away was a shock to the system,” he reflects. “I feel like I need that routine in my life of being able to play something competitive regularly. I found not having it so disruptive for day-to-day life because it throws off everything that you’re used to. I found it really, really tough.
People don’t see the effects injuries like that have on your home life but I have to mention my partner, family and friends because for them to all be there for me and help me through it was so important.” [EFC]
