Police probe footballer’s broken leg

Have your say

POLICE in Hull are appealing for witnesses after a Sunday league footballer had his leg broken by an opponent.

The incident occurred in a match between Fenners and Biggin at Noddle Hill Youth Centre in Bransholme on December 16 after a Biggin player was booked.

He allegedly became aggressive and made threats to injure another player, and shortly afterwards made a two-footed challenge which broke a Fenners player’s leg. The victim later made an allegation of assault to police and officers are now seeking to identify the man involved.

He is described as being in his mid-20s, of slim build, about 5ft 9ins tall, and with dark blond or brown spiky hair.

Anyone with information can call Humberside Police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
