It has now been nine months since our beloved Beth was rushed into hospital for life-saving surgery, and her road to recovery continues.

In February of this year, Head of Ticketing at Oakwell, Beth Sefton, a member of staff known to many supporters underwent emergency hospital care, treatment that undoubtedly helped save her life.

As a Club, we have been with Beth and her family every step of the way and tried to give the Reds fanbase regular updates on her progress. 

Her husband, Kieron has once more offered us the latest news, and as well as the light at the end of the tunnel now shining brighter, he again thanks everyone connected to this great Club of ours for the messages of support across what has been a difficult year.

Kieron told us today: "This has been a long and hard year for all of us, and especially for Beth who has now been in various hospitals for nine months.

"She has had a number of setbacks in recent months and we've had some more major scares, but she's now on the up again and has resumed her rehabilitation. We all hope the next stop for her will be home.

"If things continue to go well, we expect her to be able to return home early in the new year, but the full extent of her recovery might not be clear for some time yet.

"Everyone knows Beth as a fun and outgoing person with a strong sense of community, always helpful and always kind. We're all praying for her to be able to return to a life full of friends and laughter at the end of this journey.

"We're grateful to all the doctors, nurses, and other NHS staff who have worked hard to get this far, and we thank everyone at BFC - including supporters - for their support and best wishes."

As ever, we will continue to support the family and endeavour to update supporters where possible. 

Keep fighting, Beth!
