“There were times for sure when I started to think ‘I might not make this’"
Emyr Huws says he is excited about his future for the first time in a long while.
The Wales international’s career at Town has been blighted by injury. He missed the whole of last season with a knee problem and in a revealing interview in tonight’s matchday programme, he acknowledges that it was getting to make or break time.
“There were times for sure when I started to think ‘I might not make this’,” said Emyr.
“Looking back at the end of last season, I had one conversation where I was saying if I can’t get to a stage by this July that I needed to, where is the cut off point of banging the door; of banging my head against the wall? It was a conversation about do I carry on.
“I hardly had any time off in the summer though. I just trained and ran. From when we came back for pre-season, it’s been a gradual progression. There have been dips along the way but not now. It’s progressing but no dips now. It’s a big relief.
“I can’t see anything changing now for the rest of my career. I have never run as fast; I have never run as far. My power is there, stronger than before. It’s only going to get better as well. I’m only going to get stronger.
“It’s exciting for me. I’m excited about playing and what I can do. I’m excited about my football for the first time in a long time.”
