Update Monday 5th December

Bruce has spoken with Andy Leese this morning and asked if he could send a message to personally thank the players, medical teams, management teams, supporters, directors and all associated with Chesham and Chippenham for the help and support on Saturday, and since.

In addition Bruce would like to thank the paramedics and hospital staff for all their fine work on his behalf. Bruce has also added his thanks for the many get well messages from all those in and outside of the game. The operation has been a success, and the road to recovery has started in true Bruce Wilson style, with strength and determination!

Hopefully Bruce will be home today but the initial recuperation means it is unlikely he will be at the club for a while yet.

Saturday 3rd December

Many of you will have heard that Chesham Utd's match away at Chippenham Town today was abandoned shortly after half time due to a very serious injury - now known to be a double break of tibia and fibula, and a dislocated ankle - to Chesham Utd Captain Bruce Wilson.

We thank the Ambulance Crew, Wiltshire Air Ambulance Service, doctor and all at Chippenham Town for their assistance and support, and for doing as much as possible for Bruce before his transfer to hospital. Bruce is in good hands, undergoing treatment, and we will bring you any further news as we receive it.

Sun 4/12: Andy Leese has provided the following update

"Following the horrific injury suffered by Bruce yesterday, he was transported to hospital in Swindon. His ankle was manipulated back in place last night, and the plan is to operate on him today to possibly plate or pin the leg break. Bruce is made of tough stuff, probably our fittest player and mentally strong. If anyone can deal with the injury, I know Bruce can. We will be behind him all the way and will support him in whatever way we can.

"Many thanks for the messages of support from those in the game."
