On 24th February 2018 Damon Lathrope suffered a broken leg while playing for Woking Football Club against Boreham Wood in the UK National League. The break itself was very bad and has entailed several lengthy and complicated operations. While Damon is fully expected to make a good recovery it is, sadly, a life changing and career ending injury. It must be stressed that it was purely a football incident with no blame whatsoever to be attached to the opposition.

 

In just a few short weeks at Woking Damon had already shown himself to be totally professional, great with his teammates and fans and a very positive addition to the squad – he was looking forward to his fresh challenge at the club very much. Previously Damon had been highly respected and valued at Torquay United and Aldershot Town.  Obviously this injury is life changing for Damon and his wife Jade, especially as they are expecting their second child in the summer.

 

This testimonial page is available to leave a short message of encouragement  and also, if you wish, to make a financial contribution to Damon and Jade as they move forward – everything contributed, excluding the site fees, will go directly to them. Alongside this Woking FC will of course fulfill their contractual obligations to Damon and he will remain involved and supported by the club as he recovers.

 

We wish Damon a rapid and full recovery and send our best wishes to the Lathrope family.

Thank you so much for your generosity in the last couple of months - its been quite a ride. Damon is now out of hospital and on the long road to recovery. We presented him with a cheque at Woking's last home game of the season and are pleased he will still be involved with the club in the future. The campaign is now deactivated. Thanks again - well done everyone and God bless!

The BBC interview linked below with Damon Lathrope gives an insight into the sort of guy he is and what he has been through. This was as horrific a football injury you can imagine.

Damon is finally at home but has some more ops to come. We will close the Go Fund Me at the end of the season/ month so please do leave a message or donation for Damon and his family. Thank you
