Tamworth defender Louis Ezewele was feared to have suffered a broken leg on his loan debut with Halesowen Town in the EVO-STIK Northern Premier League on Friday night.
The 19-year-old, who only joined the Yeltz on dual registration from the National League North club on Tuesday, was hurt in an innocuous challenge 20 minutes in his new side’s 0-0 draw at Corby Town in the EVO-STIK NPL’s top flight.
After the game was held up for nine minutes, Ezewele was treated in the dressing rooms at Steel Park before being taken away by ambulance to Kettering General Hospital soon after full-time at approximately 10pm as the Yeltz wished their loan star a speedy recovery on the club’s Twitter account.
A trainee with Bristol Rovers, the teenager, pictured, joined the Lambs after being released by the Pirates and broke into the first team last season. After also spending time out on loan at Romulus to get more regular first team action, he’d agree to another loan move in order to get more football under his belt.
