CONWY Borough midfielder Matty Lock is making good progress as he recovers from a serious neck injury.

The influential squad member suffered the knock during the Tangerines’ win over Buckley Town in August, and after initially thinking he sustained a pulled muscle a trip to hospital revealed he had suffered a dislocation of his C2 and C3 vertebrae

This resulted in Lock wearing a cervical collar for 12 weeks, which also involved a number of visits to a specialist clinic in Stoke-on-Trent.

Lock, said: “I have been to the specialist unit at Stoke-on-Trent Hospital about five or six times for check-ups and scans and am continuing with physio to strengthen my neck muscles.

“I am feeling much better and remain hopeful that I will be able to continue playing football but will await further consultation and assessment with my physiotherapist before taking any decisions."

A Conwy Borough spokesman, added: “Everyone at the club is pleased to hear that Matty is on the mend and it has been great to see him at fixtures supporting his teammates.

“We all sincerely hope that he is able to start playing again in the near future.”

Warren Gibbs’ side were without a fixture last weekend as their Friday night clash at Rhyl fell victim to a frozen pitch, with Boro next in action on February 15 when they welcome troubled Bangor City to Y Morfa.
