SC Football League order YM and Heath to replay

The match at Gorings Mead on January 3 between Horsham YMCA and Broadbridge Heath – abandoned in added time due to an injury to the YM ‘keeper Sam Smith – is to be replayed. The match came to an end with Heath leading 2-1 after scoring the second goal during the incident that resulted in Smith’s injury.
It was thought that the score at the time would be allowed to stand as the match result but the Southern Combination Football League has now ordered a replay.
The match was unable to continue as it was deemed unsafe to move Smith from the pitch until the medical services arrived. The YM keeper is expected to be out of action for quite a long period with a badly dislocated and swollen elbow while the date for the replay has yet to be set.
