Seasiders match abandoned following serious injury

Weston’s home match with North Petheron was abandoned following a serious leg injury to a visiting player.

Weston’s home match against North Petherton was abandoned after 26 minutes following a serious leg injury sustained by the visitors’ fly-half Chad Lowrie.

Lowrie had been handed possession following Weston’s 22-metre drop-out and he made almost 50 metres before being tackled just short of the Weston line.

An ambulance was called and the match was eventually called off. Weston were ahead at the time, Glenn Dickson having kicked an eighth minute penalty.

The match has been re-arranged for March 24 (7.30pm kick-off).
