Zloof suffers bad break
FOOTBALL FAITHFOLD B’s match against Oakwood B was abandoned after 51 minutes when striker Ben Zloof suffered a broken leg.
Oakwood were leading through a goal from James Abrams, but manager Jason Stein believes referee Neil Cooper was right to halt proceedings.
Stein said: “I feel very sorry for Ben who I rate hugely as a player and I know he’s a top lad as well.
“The Faithfold team showed great dignity in the way they dealt with the injury in the aftermath of the abandonment and they were a credit to their teammate.
“Obviously the football plays second fiddle when the game ends like that and I imagine the league will arrange a replay.
“The match was played in good spirits between two competitive sides and it’s obviously a horrible incident for all. Everyone at Oakwood would like to wish Ben a speedy recovery.”
