Serious injury - Ryan Glynn - Shaw Cross Sharks

23 posts in this topic

Unfortunately I have to report the serious spinal injury of our star player Ryan Glynn - Ryan was injured during our game at Elland in the NCL. I would like to put on record our thanks to Elland ARLFC and to the superb Ambulance service.

Ryan is currently at Sheffield awaiting surgery on his neck and spine our thoughts are with him and his family at this dreadful time. What I am absolutely sure of is that Ryan will fight this injury.

I am also certain that the Rugby League community will support Ryan. We at Shaw Cross will be raising funds to support Ryan and his family. We intend to start collecting RL memorabilia to raffle and auction. Can I ask any club / player who might be able to help to contact me - Benny Richardson on 07803347721.

Thank you

Benny

Been through this with an Injury to one of our own players. I dont think as a team we understood what a Rugby League Family meant until that trumatic day but we got through it and so did our player.

Get Well soon Ryan

Benny also as an after thought be aware of the rest of the teams state of mind. I know from experiance it puts massive doubts into their heads too they may need councelling also, like i said just a thought

How is the lad? There's not been an update for a while.

A couple of quotes from his twitter feed:

Doctor says I could be walking out of here in 2 weeks which is great news and a lot of hard work. Unfortunately no contact sports for me

I don't know if this little story will give the lad a boost but today Moorends have a 54 year old turning out for them who broke his neck in 1985 against West Hull, this accident happened the day before he was due to sign for Sheffield Eagles.

The guy refused a stretcher and walked off the pitch before going to Goole hospital where he was quickly transferred to Pontefract General, he spent 8 months on traction and a further 4 months with a cage around his head, 6 months after the cage was removed he played his first game as a centre for Moorends, at half time he said he was bored and played the second half at open side prop, he went on to play for Sheffield Eagle & Doncaster Dragons before moving back to Moorends.
