It was a long day on this Saturday. My day started by leaving the house at 7:30am to take my car for a service in Dunfermline then collecting my dad and Gordon on the way up to Montrose. I was under no illusion that we would get the 3 points from this game but you never know. I had secretly hoped we would, all fans do don’t they? We had never been to Montrose before but it was a relatively easy drive and it was a nice sunny spring day. We arrived at around 2pm and got parked in the car park just next to the ground.
the game and a bad injury.
the game wasn’t a bad one, we were under pressure for sure but we had a few decent chances, unfortunately we never manage the final touch. We had a goal chopped off for offside but I was unsure if it was offside or not. It wasn’t the hammering by the league leaders that some had predicted. The stats on the BBC and SKY sports are off for this game. It claime Berwick had 1 shot on goal. This simply wasn’t true. The biggest incident of the game was the tackle on the Berwick striker Ousman See. I never fully saw the tackle from my vs rage point but it was soon apparent the striker was in tremendous pain. Shouts from the field to call an ambulance quickly confirmed this. It was an excruciating wait for the striker as the ambulance took almost an hour to arrive. See was traested on the pitch by paramedics and then was taken off and into the waiting ambulance. The game then restarted after a short warm up.
See injury update.
The club released an update on the injury later in the evening. The injury has been confirmed as a broken Tibia and dislocated ankle. Terrible news for the lad. As I have pointed out before these guys are part time so his work will be effected. I don’t know what his job is, I’m hoping it’s something sympathetic to his injury. Not a zero hours contract or any such thing. Our thought are with him and we wish him a speedy recovery.
