Ben Godfrey has spoken about his return to the first team after his horrendous injury on the first day of the season:
“It felt good to be back! It’s always difficult when football gets taken away from you through injury - it was one of the toughest periods of my career but I’m thankful for the people around me who kept me going and all the hard work is worth it in the end to be back out there with the boys.
It’s a strange one... After an injury like that people from the outside can maybe wonder how you’re going to come back but people don’t understand how many hours of hard work I’ve put in.
As I said, the people around me as well - the physios, my family and friends... Whether that’s on-pitch rehab or at home with the people around me, so much has gone into it.” [EFC]
