It’s Saturday, 3pm. You’re a 29 year old professional footballer, about to play in front of 2000 people in the National League. Life’s great right? Just a few hours – and a horrific double-leg break later – you’re in a hospital operating theatre being told that not only is your playing career over, but you might even struggle to walk again!
On this week’s NL Full Time Podcast, former Torquay, Aldershot and Woking midfielder Damon Lathrope shares that experience with us and how, thanks to the power of positivity, he has ‘bounced back’ and is now feeling happier, more fulfilled, than ever.
Luke, Dickie, Rob & Thom review the ‘delicately balanced’ FA Trophy Semi-Finals, with Leyton Orient’s Macauley Bonne scoring the only goal across the first legs.
It’s, oh so tight, at the top of the National League with four, five, possibly even six teams still in the title race!
We also highlight an astonishing eight days for ‘team of the week’ Barrow, Chorley taking full advantage of a weather decimated fixture list in the North, how it’s now a two-horse race in the South, as Woking and Torquay enter the final furlong and our Step 3 ‘Team in Focus’ is Whitby Town.
