Injury update on Scott Manning
15th May, 2018
All at the Toolstation NCEL wish Eccleshill United full-back Scott Manning all the best for a quick recovery after the club gave an update about his serious injury sustained at the weekend.
Play was suspended for forty minutes during the Eagles' Division One Play-Off Final victory at Grimsby Borough on Saturday as an ambulance was called half-an-hour into the encounter.
Eccleshill took to social media on Monday to announce: "Scott Manning got back home from Grimsby at 5:30am today to his wife Katie and little boy Alex.
"He has broken his fibia and tibia, and the bottom of his leg has shattered.
"The bone is still in line so, as it stands, he doesn't need an operation, thankfully.
"He has had a new pot fitted as the first one was too tight, and is feeling much better at the moment.
"Thank you all for your concern at this difficult time for Scott, and we're sure you'd all like to join us when we wish the left back the speediest of recoveries!"
The rest of the Eccleshill squad dedicated their 3-2 extra-time victory over their hosts to Scott and it is hoped he will be back soon to help them in their return to the Premier Division.
