ALONG with all Cherries supporters, I wish David Brooks a speedy recovery from stage two Hodgkin Lymphoma.

A key member of the Cherries squad, the Welsh International will undergo treatment next week.

In an emotional statement, David talks about the shock to himself and his family but remains positive of making a full recovery.

We all offer our support at this difficult time, and wish him a positive outcome and to be playing again soon.

All the best David, we send all our love, strength and respect to you and your family.
