Truro City consider further action after Daw injury
Truro City defender Warren Daw faces a lengthy lay-off following a challenge in last night’s 2-2 draw at Bashley which left him with a dislocated shoulder.
And club chairman Pete Masters revealed the club may take further action after studying a video of the challenge, which happened in stoppage time at the end of the Calor League premier division game in Hampshire.
He said: “Firstly we all wish Warren a speedy recovery. It was a particularly nasty foul, witnessed by many who attended the match including myself.
“I have asked the club’s videographer for footage to review the incident after which a decision will be made as to whether the matter should be taken further.
“I would like to thank the Ambulance service who attended and indeed are own staff who quickly took charge at the Scene and acted in a thoroughly professional manner. I have say, as chairman, I am proud to have such competence at our disposal.”
Daw, who joined City from Plymouth Parkway in the summer, was taken by ambulance to Southampton General Hospital, where, following an x-ray, it confirmed the had a dislocated elbow.
The elbow was put back in place and his arm is now in a cast to aid his recovery.
The club’ s Tracey Finetmore, who accompanied Daw to hospital said: “Warren’s parents were kept informed of what was happening throughout the night.
“Warren is now at home arriving back at 10am this morning. I would like to thank the staff at Southampton General for the care they provided.”
City boss Steve Massey described the challenge as an “assault” and feared Daw would be out for at least two months and possibly longer.
