After Saturday’s home game against Concord Rangers was abandoned, Truro City have provided an update on the condition of Michaël Hervé.
The midfielder suffered a serious shoulder injury with around 15 minutes remaining of the Vanarama National League South match at Treyew Road. The club have made this statement:
Michael Herve sustained a serious injury following a heavy tackle at approximately 4.30pm on Saturday afternoon. An ambulance was called and because of the nature of the injury, the advice that we were given was not to move him.
The ambulance service eventually arrived at Treyew Road at 7.30pm and gave 40 minutes of treatment to Michael on the pitch, which included two injections of morphine. He was then taken to Treliske Hospital where he stayed overnight for further assessment during the course of Sunday.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank both the Truro City FC and Concord Rangers FC physios for their professionalism, which undoubtedly helped to relieve Michael of some of the pain and suffering whilst waiting for the emergency services to arrive on the scene. We wish Michael a speedy recovery. Further updates will follow…
