I FEARED THE END, AD­MITS DAW­SON

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Joshua Richards

FIGHT­ING back from a longterm in­jury can be one of the tough­est chal­lenges a foot­baller faces and Yeovil mid­fielder Kevin Daw­son ad­mits there have been times when he doubted if he would ever re­turn to ac­tion.

The 25-year-old in­jured his hip in the FA Cup thir­dround clash with Manch­ester United in early Jan­uary 2015 and that ul­ti­mately kept him out for more than 12 months.

Af­ter un­der­go­ing a hip op­er­a­tion, he was trou­bled by groin in­juries but fi­nally made his re­turn on Tues­day night against Carlisle.

And now Daw­son is look­ing to the fu­ture as he tries to help Yeovil steer clear of rel­e­ga­tion trou­ble in League Two.

“There was a time when I was wor­ried I would not get back on the pitch but thank­fully it’s all be­hind me,” Daw­son re­flected.“I have had a cou­ple of op­er­a­tions and it was nice to fi­nally be back out there.

“There was a stage where ac­tu­ally I was strug­gling quite a bit men­tally but all the staff here have been great with me.”

UP­BEAT: Kevin Daw­son
