YOSA of Bamenda forward Abanke Eric has suffered a double right Tibia fracture in an amateur football game on Monday in Bamenda.

The young striker was involved in a collision with the opposition goalkeeper after he attempted to dribbled pass the keeper in a game at the St Paul playground.

Eye witnesses say he suffered a double fracture.
He was rushed to The Martins hospital which was nearby and later to Mbingo Annex where an X-ray has been done to find out the extent of the damage(s).

“I am completely devastated this morning. I just got the news when I met the players this morning. None of them had the courage to give me the bad news when it happened yesterday. It’s a very bad morning for us” Those were the words of coach Nkabyo Martin.

The former Rainbow FC forward has scored four goals in his first full season as a regular at the club having joined last season from the third tier side. He lost his dad some months back.

“He’s been a regular with the team, with a first-choice place in most of the games. He has been part of the match squad in 22 games out of 24. A very committed player. He wanted to play a game even with his father in the mortuary. It’s a big loss, a big blow to us”:The gaffer concluded.

The forward could be out for at least 8 months meaning he will not feature for YOSA this season.

The promising forward was the MVP of the last edition of the All Varsity games in Dschang following his brilliant performance which helped the University Bamenda claim the Gold medal in men’s football.
