Leamington stalwart James Mace is progressing well in his comeback from long-term injury.
The defender ruptured his ACL back in March, with the injury also meaning he was unable to continue his work as a tree surgeon. The club subsequently launched a fundraising appeal for Mace, who has made over 400 Brakes appearances.
Physio Pete Denham has given a positive update on his progress, telling the club’s website: “He’s about 18 weeks post-operation now and he’s started fully functional rehabilitation with me and Tom (Gallagher, assistant physio).
“He’s doing plenty of straight-line running and he’s in the gym working hard on his leg strength. He’s got to see the surgeon again at the beginning of December, when he should be discharged, and hopefully by January, he’ll be close to full training.”
