Town defender Jamie Sendles-White is now fully on the road to recovery and is relishing being back in and around the dressing room banter at The County Ground.
It has been a long couple of months for the 22-year-old who has been recovering after rupturing his ACL back in September.
However, Sendles-White is now off crutches and out of a brace and is slowly starting to build up the strength in his knee again.
“I had my surgery seven weeks ago and the first six weeks were very hard. I couldn’t get about, I was on crutches, I was in a brace and I was in a lot of pain,” he told swindontownfc.co.uk.
“But now I’ve been given the all-clear to walk and start to get the movement back in my knee which is going quite well.
“I’m a little bit behind in terms of the movement but every day it is feeling a bit better.
“It was very, very tough mentally for the first four, five weeks because my season was finished and I was going through a lot of pain.
“It was a bit of a depressing time but I’ve got my head around it now and I just need to focus on making sure that I’m fit for pre-season next year.
“I was bed bound for six weeks and wasn’t seeing anyone which wasn’t nice but I’m back around the lads now and getting back in with the banter.
“The boys and all the staff have been absolutely excellent so it is good to be back in and be around it.”
Sendles-White was also present at SN1 on Saturday to witness Town’s superb 1-0 victory against Bradford City and the defender was impressed with the efforts of his team-mates.
“It was a very good performance,” he added.
“We were very solid and we defended very well. It was good just to be back at The County Ground watching a game and getting the atmosphere and seeing everyone’s faces.”
