Dorchester Town’s Goalkeeper, Adam Forster is on the road to recovery after successful shoulder surgery last Tuesday.
Forster will now be in a sling for four weeks and he will be out for the rest of the season with a full recovery expected to be made by June this year.
Buzz news reporter Harry Slynn had the chance to speak to the Keeper about his road to recovery, Forster said: “I mean it’s really tough, I haven’t left the house a week because I can’t drive and I kind of live in the middle of nowhere and I work from home.
“I can’t really hard to even like do simple things like shower and stuff, so it’s pretty frustrating.
“The only good thing is I still get to obviously watch the boys on Saturday, which is good because I’ll go down with my dad, but it’s pretty frustrating not being able to do just the simple things, let alone play football anymore.”
Forster spoke about his previous injury and how they have affected his career, he said: “I had my first surgery about 18 months ago and it’s been completely fine.
“Then obviously this has happened now, it’s definitely holts’ progression because you know, I feel like I was getting into the swing of things really well.
“Dorchester played 15 games or so and we were doing well and I thought I was playing well and now I’m out for the season and I’ve kind of got a start again next pre-season.”
Forster had to take out an £8000 loan for the shoulder surgery
“Obviously, I’m not getting the football income and I’m just about actually moving out next week so it’s not great timing to be honest.
“The financial side’s not great at the moment, I’m lucky in the fact that I can still work my day job, but obviously that extra income on the side definitely does affect that, especially with getting the loan as well on top of that that I have to pay back.
“All my friends and family and the club as well been great, they’ve just supported me, checking on me to see how I’m doing, everyone’s been great.
“All the people, in and outside of football been great and I couldn’t really do it without them, so, um, yeah, highly appreciative.”
Dorchester town are looking with win their third game in a row this weekend as they look to pull away from the bottom half of the table as they face Dartford in the National League south.
