A big thank you

22 November 2012

Injury-hit defender John Egan has asked the club to pass on his sincere thanks for all the support he has received since breaking his leg during Tuesday's home fixture with Plymouth Argyle.

Egan suffered the horrific injury early into the first half of the npower League 2 encounter, bringing an abrupt end to his loan period with the Bantams in the process.

The 20 year-old broke the tibia and fibula bones in his right leg after falling awkwardly following a headed clearance made just outside City's penalty area.

He isn't expected to play again this season as a result of the nasty injury.

Egan, who only joined City on loan from Sunderland at the beginning of the month, spent Tuesday night in Bradford Royal Infirmary but has since moved to a private hospital in the North East.

The Irishman is now expected to have his injured leg pinned in the next day or so.

Recovering after the incident, Egan said: "I just really want to thank all the staff who helped me on the night."

"Their support when the incident happened and since then has been brilliant. The fans were great (on the night) too. All I could hear getting into the ambulance was the buzz of the crowd chanting my name and clapping me off.

"It really helped me during a difficult situation."

Bradford City Football Club would like to place on record their thanks to John for all of his efforts in a City shirt and wish him all the very best in his recovery from his injury.
