Supporters who attended the league match yesterday will know that Kidlington goalkeeper Sam Warrell sustained a serious leg injury during the second half which lead to the match being abandoned.
Sadly, Sam sustained clean breaks to both bones in his lower right leg and was finally taken to hospital at 8:30pm yesterday evening. Today he underwent an operation at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, and will now begin his road to recovery.
Nick Duval, Trustee of Kidlington FC said "On behalf of the Management, Players and Officials of Kidlington FC may I extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone at Cambridge City who helped Sam at the game yesterday. In particular, the club would wish to praise the efforts of City’s Sports Therapist Charlotte Pinner who along with our own Shannon Crawford managed the situation whilst demonstrating in-depth knowledge and an understanding of the circumstances they faced. When it was revealed that an ambulance was some four hours away and with the match abandoned, they both worked tirelessly to make him as comfortable as possible bearing in mind the severity of the situation. Our thanks also go to City Secretary Andy Dewey who was particularly helpful and looked after our team and management until the ambulance departed the ground".
Cambridge City would like to thank everyone at Kidlington for their kind words and wish Sam all the very best for a full recovery.
Details of a date for the rearranged fixture will be announced in due course.
