We would like to thank all Luton Town supporters – and those from Colchester United and across English football – for the messages of support sent to Luke Berry following his injury at Colchester yesterday.
That gratitude is extended to Colchester fans at the Weston Homes Community Stadium for the wonderful ovation they gave Luke as he was carried from the pitch on a stretcher, and to the U’s medical staff for their help in assisting our own team led by physio Simon Parsell.
Simon has given us an update on Luke’s current situation, after the midfielder was assessed at Ipswich Hospital yesterday.
He suffered a dislocated left ankle and a fractured fibula, but was discharged last night to return home with his leg in a cast to allow the swelling to go down.
On Tuesday Simon will be accompanying Luke to the Princess Grace Hospital in London, where he will see a foot and ankle consultant to decide the way forward in his rehabilitation.
Last night the 25-year-old posted this on twitter…
Thank you everyone for the messages of support really appreciate it, means the world❤️ These things happen the only thing to do now is get high on morphine 😂— Luke Berry (@LukeDBerry) March 30, 2018
