Shirebrook Town game postponed

21st August, 2018

Armthorpe Welfare's Toolstation NCEL Division One match due to take place on Wednesday evening has been postponed after a committee member suffered a serious accident whilst at work.

A statement from the club released on Tuesday said: "It is with great sadness that we have to announce that committee member Nigel Roe has suffered a serious accident at work and suffered a major head injury.

"His family were initially told he had an inoperable brain haemorrhage and had passed away. However, he was on life support due to him being an organ donor and after further reviews, his family were informed he was not clinically dead due to some brain activity.

"At this time, Nigel is in an extremely critical state with his life clearly in the balance. We cannot make any further comment or speculation and wish to provide the necessary privacy for the family as Iím sure you will all respect.

"Our thoughts are with Nigelís family at this extremely difficult time.

"We would also like to thank the NCEL, Shirebrook Town and the match officials for their understanding in cancelling tomorrow night's game, as well as thanking our fellow NCEL clubs and wider football family for the messages of support."
