Hinton nose bleed could be serious
After last Saturday's battle of Rushden Field in medevial Northamptonshire the team came back with a unit of battle scarred troops.
Top of the injury list was centre half Craig Hinton. He was caught in the face by Rushden's strongest warrior, Onandi Lowe, and given a bloody nose. This has now turned out to be something more serious.
At first he was thought to have had a simple broken nose but he has now been sent for exploratory surgery to find out the extent of the damage. It's not known how long this will take and if he will be fit for this coming Saturday's home game against Exeter City.
The other Harriers player who was involved in skirmishes was Abdou Sall. He was also in the wars with Lowe, this time getting a kick in the head.
Sall was taken to hospital in Kettering with concussion but was released soon after. He is now back in training and should be available for the weekend.
I must stress that at no time were these injuries caused maliciously by Lowe.
Other news today was that the forthcoming game at Aggborough against newcomers, Boston Utd, has had it's kick off time changed. It will now start a hour earlier at 2:00pm.
This is enable everyone, except Boston fans, to get home in time to watch the international friendly between England & Portugal.
