GKC Patient Joins Longlevens To Step Up Come Back From Injury
Slimbridge midfielder Ben Hands has signed for Longlevens on a dual registration as he steps up his return to action following an ACL injury. Hands, who suffered the knee injury during Slimbridge’s 1-0 defeat at Moneyfields in November 2018, has missed over a year of action and will join up with the Hellenic Premier side as he looks to get back to action.
“It’s very exciting,” Hands told us after the deal was confirmed. “It’s been a long time coming and I’ve worked harder than ever to be where I am now.
After the injury was confirmed back at the end of 2018, the whole of Gloucestershire football showed their support for Hands on social media and the former Bishops Cleeve man has thanked everyone for their support – in particularly at the beginning of his recovery.
“Obviously my family were amazing throughout and I’m grateful for how motivating and helpful they have been especially when I first did it. Oh and of course a massive thanks to my surgeon Doctor Peter Kempshall for everything he did with my operation and rehab,” Hands told Severn Sport.
