ASHINGTON CFC striker Gareth Bainbridge – stretchered off during the first period of extra time during the Colliers FA Cup first qualifying round replay against Shildon at Woodhorn Lane on Tuesday night – has dislocated his shoulder.

Manager Gary Middleton said: “We’re really gutted for the lad.

“He’s done well as part of the squad, scoring freely this season, and has won us games.

“It’s disappointing not only for him but for us.

“It was an accident but nevertheless a horrible incident.

“Things like this happen in football but unfortunately Gareth tends to be on the receiving end of these horrific injuries.

“It’s bad luck again for him but he knows he has our full support.”
