£10,000 is needed to be raised so that Hereford FC's Jamie Cuss can have an operation on his knee.
I was absolutely over the moon to achieve my ambition for playing for Hereford FC when Peter Beadle signed me last summer. The season started well with scoring on my debut v Bridgwater Town, another goal against Alvechurch in the FA Cup was also another high point gaining me my first MOTM award for the club. Unfortunately in the next round v Romulus I twisted my leg on the artificial surface resulting in a tear to my Anterior Cruciate ligament.
Despite rest and rehabilitation I was unable to overcome the injury and my only way forward to continue playing for Hereford FC is to undergo surgery. Unfortunately at this level the only way for this to happen is to self fund an operation - the NHS waiting list is over 12 months so is not an option.
The club have been fantastic in supporting me and are behind me in my quest to return to where I was only 6 months ago. Being self employed, not only is the amount prohibitive but I will also have to a substantial period before I can continue working.
Being a local lad I have always been a Hereford United/FC fan. I was a mascot when I was 6 years old when HUFC played Wimbledon in the FA Cup. I was also a Junior Bull too! I have represented top sides in the county and now to be appearing for Hereford FC is a dream for a long life fan.
I really want to continue my career at Edgar Street so I am asking all friends and fans if they can help me to achieve this. I will be holding events in the coming weeks/months to help with funding the operation and it would be great if you can help me reach my goal by donating via my Just Giving page.
Thanks in advance
