Moors boss Lewis Dickman has penned a blog to update supporters as he continues his recovery from emergency surgery on an inflamed appendix.
I want to start by thanking everyone for their kind words and best wishes over the course of the past 10 days or so since I was taken ill.
From the people at the Club who have kept in touch with me regularly to the staff, players and supporters – every single message of support has meant so much to me.
I want to offer a special thanks to Andy Inness along with all the players – particularly the more senior ones – for their support because they have really stepped up to the plate off the pitch.
I am absolutely gutted to not be able to be around the team at the moment and trying to have a direct impact on our progress, but I am taking the best medical advice to get better as soon as possible to get back in that dugout.
It’s obviously been a very worrying and anxious time for my family and I, but thanks to the brilliant work of the NHS and everyone at Cramlington and North Tyneside Hospitals I am now on the path to recovery. I will continue working hard to be back leading the team as soon as I can.
Once again, thanks to you all for your support – and I will be watching the live stream intently when the team travels to Farsley Celtic on Tuesday night.
Good luck, lads.
