Harriers player recovers at home following Aggborough drama
A KIDDERMINSTER Harriers player is recovering at home after being discharged from hospital.
Striker Anthony Malbon was knocked unconscious and stretchered off during the club’s 3-0 defeat to Mansfield Town on Saturday after a collision with opposing player Louis Briscoe.
He was later taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, in the air ambulance which landed on the Aggborough pitch.
The referee ended the game early and fans were cleared from the stadium as the helicopter approached. Club doctor Phil Earl said Mr Malbon had suffered a “significant blow to his head and neck”.
The striker had undergone tests and a scan which came back with the all-clear and was discharged from the hospital on Saturday night.
A statement on the Harriers website said: “The player will now of course spend time convalescing at home.
“Everyone at Harriers sends their thoughts and best wishes to Anthony as he recovers.”
