Play delayed as Bamber Bridge footballer cracks head on concrete
Play was delayed at a football match in Bamber Bridge after a player cracked his head this afternoon.
Footballer Brad Carsley is being taken to hospital by Ambulance after suffering a head injury.
In a Twitter post Bamber Bridge FC said: “Concerns for Brad Carsley as he cracks his head on the concrete perimeter fence while trying to whip in a cross from the left.”
The game at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium in Irongate was suspended for about 25 minutes as paramedics attended to him.
