Lewis Recovering Well
Lewis Gregory underwent surgery recently to help him recover from a lower back injury that he was diagnosed with earlier in the year.
After the surgery Lewis is feeling good as he explained when we spoke to him earlier this week. “My back is feeling pretty good at the moment,” he said. “I’m walking around and doing some very basic work so it looks like the surgery went really well. The surgeon was happy with how it all went and it’s all healed up nicely. Now it’s just a case of starting the long road back to recovery. I’ve started some very low level rehab work and I’ll be pretty busy over the winter getting fit for next season.
“Before Christmas all the rehab work will be very low level as I try to get some strength and flexibility around that area. Then we’ll look to push that forward after Christmas along with some skills work. Then it’ll just be a case of building it up in time to hopefully be ready for the start of the season. The important thing is to come back 100% fit and not to come back too quickly. Hopefully this will be the last time we have to worry about an injury like this.”
The injury came at the worst possible time for Lewis who was in outstanding form at the time. “It’s always frustrating when you miss games through injury,” he said. “You just have to get your head down, come back stronger and make sure that it doesn’t happen again. I was happy with my numbers this year and it’s a shame that I couldn’t have carried on for a longer period. It’s definitely a season to build on next year.”
Lewis also had the honour of captaining the side in 2017 about which he said: “I certainly didn’t expect to do that. To get the opportunity to do it was a real privilege. There are so many great names who have captained this team in the past so to be able to add my name to that list was a real honour. The lads were all fantastic and it was a pleasure to lead them out.”Back to News
