A positive update on Jacob Blyth!
Following assessment in hospital we have a positive update on the injuries Jacob Blyth sustained in today’s friendly against a Furness Select XI.
It has been confirmed that Jacob suffered a dislocated shoulder after colliding with an advertising board and then a perimeter wall in the early stages of the game. His shoulder has been put back into place and is recovering well.
He has also had scans on his head in line with head injury protocols and they have come up all clear which is fantastic news. More good news is that whilst it was initially feared that he had also suffered a broken arm, no fractures were reported on his arm x-rays.
Further scans on his wrist look okay, but he will be having another scan next week.
We would like to thank both those who assisted at the game, and the fantastic staff at Furness General Hospital for their help.
We are grateful for all the messages of support sent to us for Jacob, we will make sure he gets to see them in the next day or so and continue to keep you updated.
