Ched Evans has provided an update on his recovery following his surgery in April 2023.
As was confirmed earlier this year, the striker developed a serious medical condition which faced potentially life-changing consequences, but the 2022/23 Players’ Player of the Year has undergone a successful surgery and is now on the road to recovery.
Ched said: “I’m five weeks post-surgery and the surgery went really well.
“It took three hours. They went in through my throat, they removed some bone and some plates which were compressing my spinal cord, but the surgery went really well.
“I met with the surgeon last week and he was really pleased with how I’m recovering.
“He said once the bone has fused to the cages that my neck will be as strong as ever, which was the best news we could have wished for.
“It also means that I’ll be back next season doing what I love to do: scoring goals and winning games with Preston.
“The early bird season ticket finishes soon so please get yourself down to Deepdale, support the lads and support the team.
“It’s going to be a big season ahead and I hope to see you all there soon. Have a good summer.”
