Tony O?Keeffe's Injury

Wed, 05 Sep 2007 02:35

Just to let everyone know Tony O?Keeffe seriously injured himself playing on Saturday. After being dumped in a tackle he came off with a bad back at half time. Not long after the final whistle he went home. That night he was in great pain when either standing or sitting, then lost all feeling in his left leg. He went to Selly Oak hospital who transferred him to the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital. Today he under went an MRI scan on his back that showed a prolapsed disc in his lower back. The consultant said Tony may have suffered nerve damage. He will have surgery tomorrow when we will find out more.

I?m sure you join me in wishing Tony all the best and I will let you know when there is more news that should be tomorrow.

Regards, Mark Baldwin, Club Secretary
