Football took second place to the health of Falmouth Town's Rob Wearne, after the striker was rushed to hospital following a collision with Elburton Villa goalkeeper Simon May during Saturday's Carlsberg South West Peninsula League match at Bickland Park.
Wearne suffered a fractured skull with some bleeding, and was transferred from Treliske to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth on Saturday evening. Yesterday, he was reported to be in an induced coma.
The seriousness of the injury quickly became evident, with referee Lee Dudman abandoning the game after 74 minutes of play. Falmouth were leading 2-1 at that juncture, but the result will not stand and the game will have to be rearranged.
