Midfielder makes his comeback for U21'sSouthend United midfielder, Myles Weston was delighted to get back out on the Roots Hall turf yesterday in the Under-21’s fixture with AFC Bournemouth.
The game, which finished 1-1, was Weston’s first bit of game time since November after sustaining a foot injury.
The pacey winger completed 65 minutes for Kevin Maher’s side yesterday and was pleased to come through the game unscathed after a frustrating few months.
“I was happy to get back out there and play 65 minutes.” Weston said.
“It feels great to be back playing, and I was delighted to get through it with no reaction.
“It’s been a tough few months as this is the first injury I’ve had when I’ve been out for so long.
“I’ve just had to stay focused, and make sure I get it right, and get my body right so I’m ready to come back and play.”
Weston has spent the last four months out with an injury called plantar fasciitis; an injury which causes pain in the heel and foot.
It’s been a long road to recovery for Weston, but now well on his way to full fitness the midfielder states he will be ready when Phil Brown calls upon him.
“I got through 65 minutes pain-free, and now I’ve just got to keep on top of it and just do the things that the Physio tell me to do.
“It’s up to the Manager whether I play some part on Saturday; if he feels I’m ready then I’m ready.”
“But if he feels a need another game in the Under-21’s then I’ll play that game next week.
“Obviously it’s going to take me a little bit of a while to get back to that level, but I’m ready to go now.
“I can’t wait to start playing again; It’s been a hard few months but I feel strong, focused and ready to play my part.”
