BALA TOWN midfielder Danny Gosset has announced that he is in "complete remission" following a battle with B-Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

The 25-year-old, who is from the Bangor area, was diagnosed with the type of cancer on August 16, 2019, after he had initially started suffering from a dull ache in his left hip.

Since then, Gosset, a former pupil of Ysgol Syr Hugh Owen School in Caernarfon, has been undergoing courses of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Taking to Twitter to make the announcement of his 'all-clear' today, Gosset said: "After 6 months of chemotherapy I’m absolutely delighted to get the all clear. Complete REMISSION.

"Me and my family are truly blessed and so thankful for everything. I appreciate every single one of you who have reached out and supported through this journey.

"The hard work continues, now moving on to radiotherapy treatment. Then to have a full recovery on the damage in my femur. Looking forward to getting off these crutches soon for the first time in 6 months. Hopefully I can now move on with some normality."

Hundreds of messages of support and admiration followed for Gosset, who is very much a respected figure within Welsh football, having appeared for Rhyl, The New Saints and Bangor City before signing for Bala in August 2018.

The midfielder spent last season on loan at Cefn Druids and previously played for English Football League side’s Oldham Athletic and Stockport County, as well as the Wales C team.

Alongside football, he runs a barber shop in Y Felinheli, Gwynedd.

Fundraisers to support him during his battle with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma collected more than £10,000.
