San Francisco player injured in game

(Oldest Posts First)

What is the status of young McGovern from the Ulster Club who was injured in an off the ball incident against the San Francisco Celts recently?
Have seen nothing on this forum about it and very little in the media. I heard the SFPD was involved and last I heard he was in an induced coma. Were charges ever filed?

some of the clubs over in san francisco should be ashamed of themselves. numerous spectators witnessed the incident and have talked about it in bars later, but have not come forward to police, meanwhile the victim's life remains at stake. terrible. doesnt look like the board are cooperating either

Mark McGovern is slowly recovering. After almost 5 weeks in a coma, combined with MSRS and pneumonia...he is taking steps with help and trying to speak a little.

Someone needs to be locked up for violence carried out on the field of play before the madness carried out each week will stop. Every member of the San Francisco board should resign in utter shame over this. It's a disgrace that a young man may never talk or walk properly because of some cowardly piece of scum who should be charged with attempted murder.

Have just read a report Mark McGovern in the Irish Independent. It's a total disgrace that no one has come forward to give evidence regarding this incident. What has happened to the people who saw the incedent?
If the culprit had any self respect, morals or balls he would come forward and admit what he did. I'd love to get my hands on the yellow.........
