Berwick Rangers would like to formally thank both Berwick supporters and the wider football community for the kindness and support that has been shown to Ouzy See over the last few weeks.
The JustGiving page which was set up by the club to financially support See whilst he is unable to work has received over £2300 in donations. Furthermore, supporters have boosted the amount by donating to a bucket collection which took place before our game versus Stenhousemuir last Tuesday. Whilst the support from Berwick supporters has been enormous, the club would also like to recognise and thank supporters of other clubs, match officials, sponsors, local businesses, other football clubs and everyone else who has either donated, sent well wishes or helped to raise awareness of the campaign.
Since the last update, See has been discharged from hospital and has asked that the following message be shared: “I would like to say a massive thank you to the Berwick Rangers family for the thoughtful gesture of starting a JustGiving page for me. It’s been a hard and emotional time for me and my family, going through such a horrible experience, but the support from everyone at the club from the chairman, the board, the gaffer, the staff, the fans, my teammates and everyone else has made it 100 times easier. The support just makes me want to bounce back stronger and return the favour to the club I’ve loved since joining. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has donated, I cannot express how much it means to me.”
Berwick Rangers Chairman, Len Eyre, has also shared a few words: “As Chairman of Berwick Rangers Football Club I would like to thank everyone associated with our club for the support shown for Ouzy. I would also like to thank supporters of other clubs, specifically Montrose, who have given to the JustGiving page. Moreover, the support shown for the bucket collection by supporters at the Stenhousemuir game is massively appreciated. After witnessing such a horrendous injury at Montrose and the pain Ouzy endured, we are looking forward to seeing him make a full recovery and be back in the Black and Gold shirt scoring goals next season.”
The latest reports from medical staff suggest that See could be back to full fitness by November or December, although at such an early stage no time can be guaranteed. Anyone who would still like to donate to the JustGiving page can do so here.
