Serious Injury Causes Whitfords Game Abandonment

26 June 2013 Written by HRSC

Hamersley Rovers : Whitfords City

(Match abandoned due to serious injury)

A serious injury to Rovers striker Ryan Williams caused Sunday’s clash against Whitfords to be abandoned during the first half.

The big striker went down awkwardly after contact between himself and a Whitford’s player, the gravity of the situation immediately becoming apparent to both players and spectators as Williams fell in great discomfort.

The referee correctly abandoned the game after the extent of the injury was realised and Williams was taken away by ambulance to hospital, where a lengthy treatment lies ahead of him.

Hamersley Rovers, and all those involved with the club, wish Ryan a full and speedy recovery and are already putting plans into place to assist with fundraising for Ryan’s ongoing treatment. We will keep everyone updated with the details.


Hamersley Rovers Reserves 1:0 Whitfords City Reserves

In strong wind and wet conditions, Hamersley Rovers reserves produced another hard working display, with a Nick Hage goal and another clean sheet seeing them take all three points to take them to the top of the reserves division.

The first half found Rovers playing against a strong wind and a Whitfords side playing with determination. While the home side was under pressure and struggled to create many chances, their goal was not often threatened either and a scoreless position at half time seemed a good stage for success.

The second half found Hamersley playing with a much greater confidence and renewed determination, and, not long after his arrival onto the pitch, substitute Nick Hage scored with what may have looked like a cross to most, but which was actually a shot.

Rovers enjoyed good possession and though they did have to be on their game defensively, were good for the win.

Tel Stupple’s men will now look to further build on this result in the next round.
