Injured striker Steve Davies said he is overwhelmed by the efforts of City fans who raised more than £250 for him in a bucket collection.\r\n\r\nSteve, who is recovering after breaking his upper arm during last month’s game against Halifax, said he was touched by the generosity of those who donated.\r\n\r\nHe said: “All I can say is thank you, no one had to organise a collection for me and the fact the fans did this shows just how great a club Gloucester City is. It’s quite overwhelming that everyone has been so kind.\r\n\r\n”A special thanks to Robbie Searle and Josh Peters who were shaking the buckets, the weather was awful on Monday and I could see them running in and out of the rain.”\r\n\r\nThe 22-year-old, who works as a financial advisor, has been an ever present figure at games since an operation to pin his arm – although he is still unable to drive.\r\n\r\n”I should also say thanks to Craig (Barden, City physio) for picking me up and taking me to games and to get the coach. Vern (Jack Harris) has been offering moral support too, he has only just come back from his injury so he knows what its been like for me.\r\n\r\n”I wanted to get back to the games as soon as I could, we have a great group of lads at Gloucester and I love being part of the team.”
