Update on James Ellershaw19/10/2011
As many of you may have read in the JEP, James Ellershaw was visited last week by four JRFC representatives.
Chairman Bill Dempsey, Head Coach Ben Harvey and fellow players Ben Evans and Nathan Hannay made the trip to the Luton & Dunstable Hospital, where James has been recovering since receiving multiple injuries in a car accident in the UK on October 1st.
"It was good to see James and find him to be in quite good spirits", said Bill Dempsey. "He's had a couple of pretty major operations to repair his elbow and knee, and in addition there are other injuries to his sternum, ribs and collarbones that have been harder to pinpoint."
Bill continued, "He told us that he hoped to be out of hospital within the next couple of weeks, although he will still have a long road to recovery ahead of him from that point. We were pleased to find him in good form, in spite of an over-exuberant greeting from big Nathan that nearly caused more injuries! He has a good network of family and friends around him and that support will be invaluable as he continues his recovery."
