CRICKET - Bangor all rounder Mott seriously injured


Chronicle Reporter


BANGOR’s North Wales Premier League match against St Asaph came to an abrupt end after Aussie all round Shane Mott broke his leg.

Vice chairman Richard Lloyd Jones said that Mott, 26, was treated on the field for around 20 minutes before he was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd for an operation.

“Everyone at the club is gutted. I think he’s one of the best we’ve ever had,” Mr Jones said.

“He’s avery popular lad, not just in Bangor but with other clubs.”

Mott hit 29 runs off 35 balls after Bangor were put into bat, as Bangor reached 103 for 7.

St Asaph were on 27 for no loss when Mott sustained his injury.

The players decided that the conditions were too dangerous to continue.

The umpires recorded Bangor as conceeding the match, giving St Asaph the win and 24 points, which moved them out of the relegation zone.

Conceeding a match carries a 16 point penalty

Mott was due to play for Holland in the CB40 match against Worcestershire yesterday.

“Shane has taken 45 wickets for the club, which have been very important, as we have lost one or two experienced players with injuries,” Mr Jones added.

A league committee will meet this evening (Monday, August 22) to rule on the result of the match.
