Football: Horrific injury clouds match.

Byline: BY NEIL LEATHER BARROW

Mossley 3

Burscough 2

BURSCOUGH lost 3-2 at Seel Park yesterday but the game was overshadowed by a 36th minute injury to long-serving player Ryan Bowen.

Challenging for the ball near the sideline with Mossley's Anthony Bingham, Bowen crashed headlong into the pitch side wall, breaking a concrete panel into a number of pieces.

Players left the field for a 25-minute break as he received immediate medical treatment before being stretchered off in a neck brace and taken to Tameside Infirmary, where he awaits the results of a CT scan.

When the match resumed, Burscough took the lead in the 19th minute thanks to a strike from Chris Price. but Mossley levelled with a fine individual goal by Bingham on 28 minutes.

Though Burscough had most of the play after the interval, it was Mossley that scored next on 71 minutes.

Captain Melford Knight rose above the Linnets defence to head home a right wing free-kick from Joe Shaw.

Price equalised on 81 minutes with a stunning effort from 25 yards, leaving home keeper Danny Trueman glued to the spot.

Just over a minute later Burscough were stunned as Danny White headed home another Shaw free-kick to cap a miserable day for the Linnets.
