He has suffered a suspected ruptured achilles in the defeat to Gosport Borough.

Parsons went down in the aftermath to Borough’s second goal. After a lengthy stoppage he was eventually stretchered from the field.

A popular member of the squad he now faces an estimated six months on the sidelines.

It’s a huge blow for Parsons how suffered an ACL tear in the opening week of the 2021/22 campaign, forcing him out of more-or-less the entire season, only returning to the squad for the final two games of the season.

He made four appearances last season, including as a substitute in the play-off semi final defeat at Oxford City.

Everyone at the club wishes Alex a speedy recovery and hopes to see him back in a red shirt as soon as possible.
