Wokingham's Whiting prepared to play the waiting game

SAM Whiting is hoping his patience will pay dividends when he makes his long-awaited Wokingham & Emmbrook comeback.

Sam Whiting in action for Wokingham.

The 23-year-old winger will have been out of action for virtually an entire year by the time he pulls on a Sumas shirt again.

A broken leg against Shortwood United in April ended his 2011/12 season and when he re-opened the injury in just the second game of the 2012/13 campaign it spelt another lengthy spell on the sidelines.

This time, though, Whiting has been doing things differently.

He has employed the services of a 'brilliant' physio, stuck to regular exercise routines and remained both positive and patient to ensure he does not make the same mistake twice.

"I probably made my comeback one or two months too early last time," he told the News.

"I didn't have much physio and I thought I was alright to play again, but it was too soon. This time I have got a really good physio, who hasn't just got my fitness back, he has also got my confidence back that I can be the player I was

again."
