Faversham Town keeper Simon Overland ruled out through fractured tibia

Tuesday 30th December 2014
FAVERSHAM TOWN are organising a collection to raise funds for their injured ever-present goalkeeper Simon Overland.

Overland, 28, was injured in a nasty collision in the 12th minute of Faversham Town’s 3-0 home win over local rivals Sittingbourne on Saturday.

He was taken to hospital and was diagnosed to have fractured his tibia and it is likely he will be ruled out for the remainder of the season.

A club statement, which was published on www.favershamtownfc.co.uk, said: “Simon Overland has been an ever-present for Town this term and will be a big loss for the team.

“He is also a self-employed coach and a University student with a family.

“Therefore, the club will organise a collection to raise funds for him.

“Everyone at the club would like to wish Overland a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back in action when he fully recovers.”

The Lilywhites sit two points clear at the top of the Ryman League Division One South table, having collected 18 wins and 5 draws from their 27 league games.

Ray Turner’s side travel to eighth-placed Herne Bay on New Year’s Day, before welcoming Chipstead to Salters Lane on Saturday.

Both games kick-off at 3:00pm.
