Luther Blissett sends ‘best wishes’ to Binfield FC youngster after ankle break




Former England and Watford legend Luther Blissett sent a tweet to youngster Jake Rafferty on Thursday following the Binfield right-back’s serious ankle injury sustained during the Allied Counties Youth League tie with Knaphill at Stubbs Lane.

Blissett – who earned 14 caps for England and played for the Hornets and AC Milan during a playing career that spanned nearly 20 years – tweeted Binfield first team manager Roger Herridge and included Rafferty’s twitter handle @jrafferty0 in the tweet.

‘Bliss’ – currently involved off the field at Hellenic Premier side Burnham – was one of many well wishers who have posted on social media.

The Binfield youth assistant manager Mark Poole tweeted ‘All the best Jack, heard is was break and dislocation, so I hope you are okay now. Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery!!’

Herridge followed up his original tweet.

And there were further posts from the local footballing fraternity including Bracknell Town’s youth team account and Binfield first team captain Alex Luis.

Rafferty has also received messages of support from club mates at Stubbs Lane.

All of us at FootballinBracknell would like to wish Jack a quick recovery – particularly in light of starting the season so positively.
