Monday 4th September.
So much for my hope for better news on the injury front, although
the latest victim could have been much worse. Whilst on the way
home from a function in Middlesbrough, the car in which Clyde Wijnhard
was travelling as a passenger careered off the A1, up a bank, and
the car then caught fire. Wijnhard has a badly broken arm as well
as other injuries of a more superficial nature whilst the driver
went through the windscreen but somehow got off quite lightly. Seemingly,
Clyde is in quite bad shape and just managed to call for help on
his mobile before losing consciousness.
Wijnhard had a four-hour operation to reset the double compound
fracture of his arm, and it remains to be seen how long he will
be out of the game, but I think it will take somewhat longer than
Jamie Vincentís broken wrist! Although he hasnít been playing at
all well this season I wish him a speedy recovery, as we cannot
afford any more dodgy luck like this, but, thankfully at least he
has lived to tell the tale.
