The Non-League Football Paper - - NEWS - By Matt Bad­cock

THE FOOT­BALL As­so­ci­a­tion are wel­com­ing guests from Ro­ma­nia to Eng­land’s Wem­b­ley game against Croa­tia as a thank you for their help when North Rid­ing League’s Stu­art Rose suf­fered a po­ten­tially life-threat­en­ing fa­cial in­jury at the UEFA Re­gions Cup.

Rose was rep­re­sent­ing Eng­land in Ro­ma­nia in Septem­ber when a freak ac­ci­dent in the game led to a num­ber of fa­cial frac­tures and con­cus­sion.

Quick ac­tion from the FA’s med­i­cal team Dr Mike Allen and physio Jack Demetriou brought the se­ri­ous sit­u­a­tion un­der con­trol.

The pair have also been in­vited to the Three Lions’ UEFA Na­tions League game on Novem­ber 18, along with Ro­ma­nia FA li­ai­son of­fi­cers Adrian Pana and An­drei Stancu, Rose and his part­ner, and North Rid­ing FA’s Paul Camp­bell.

Head of Na­tional League Sys­tem Lau­rence Jones said: “The speed and skill shown by Jack and Mike were ex­em­plary and pre­vented it be­com­ing a very se­ri­ous sit­u­a­tion.

“The sup­port given by the two li­ai­son of­fi­cers from the Ro­ma­nian FA was ab­so­lutely ex­cep­tional and in­cluded a num­ber of trips from Buzau to Bucharest where Stu­art was in hospi­tal.

“He is on the road to re­cov­ery and it will be a real priv­i­lege to host them all at Wem­b­ley for an Eng­land in­ter­na­tional.”
