We can now report that Lloyd Kerry has been assessed by medical professionals, and is awaiting surgery.
The midfielder has sustained a double fracture to his cheekbone, and subsequent fractures to his eye-socket. At this stage, we are unable to ascertain how long Lloyd will be out of action, however everyone at the club would like to wish him a speedy recovery.
Manager Simon Weaver commented “It’s a sad state of affairs. There was no malice in the challenge, but quite how he’s walked off the field is incredible. He’s such a brave lad, and when you see someone like Lloyd, who gives everything for the cause go off in an Ambulance it’s a heartbreaker. We’re all thinking of him and his family tonight, and we’ll be right behind him as he recovers from this injury.
