Eastbourne Borough’s National League South fixture away at Truro City was abandoned with 58 minutes played last night owing to injury to Alex Finney.

The Borough defender suffered a horrific knee injury after landing awkwardly having won a challenge with a City forward in the Sports’ penalty area.

However, we are pleased to report that Finney, 27, was last night in a stable condition in hospital, awake, talking and laughing with staff.

We await news of the x-rays and tests carried out and will provide an update when more information is available.
