Purches feared his career was over

AFC Bournemouth defender Stephen Purches admits to BBC Radio Solent that he feared his career could be over after suffering a double leg fracture against Rochdale in February 2012.

The 33-year-old, in his 10th year at the Cherries, has not played since suffering the injury but has been awarded a testimonial match against first club West Ham on Saturday.
