A statement issued on said: “The club and specialists recommended that the striker have an operation - but Jimmy has opted for the alternative option of taking intensive physio.

”Jimmy had to make a hard decision and the club respects it.

”Dover Athletic will now pull out all the stops to ensure Jimmy gets the best possible medical care - and respect his decision, which we know was not an easy one to make.”
