"I just wanted to say a very big thank you to everyone that has called, text, e-mailed and enquired about me after my recent back operation. I have been quite overwhelmed by the number of enquiries and well wishers I have received over the past 5 or so days. It has been explained to me that my back took more than a bit of a "kicking" during the operation last week and I am now feeling the full effects of this, which is uncomfortable to say the least. That said, the response I have received from everyone, from work, Uxbridge FC, friends and football in general has been quite humbling. I genuinely, thank you very much, and I very much look forward to seeing/speaking/catching up with to you all when I return to work, football and socialising. Choulsey".
