Club secretary Dave Walker reiterated that statement and said Mr Parkinson is recovering.

He said: “Brian’s quite bright really and he doesn’t appear to be too fazed by it.

“The first couple of weeks are about rest and getting as much of it as he can.

“He can’t drive or anything like that for four weeks but everyone has sent him their best wishes.”
