Keynsham Town's delight at their local derby win over AFC Team Bath in the Premier League on Sunday was soured by the news that new signing Brianna Oeser had sustained a compound ankle fracture of her tibia and fibia and displaced ligaments in the club's reserve game at West Ham the same day.
The Danish midfielder was making her first appearance for the club after signing for the Southern Division side last month.
Keynsham's First Team Manager, Barrie Newton told Women's Soccer Scene: "Although Brianna has played at a high level in Denmark for the past two seasons and before that in the United States, she was short of match fitness and only arrived at the club on Friday. I decided to send her with the reserves at West Ham to get 90 minutes instead of being a substitute for the first team.
"Before that, Brianna went to our training ground on Saturday and assisted with Junior training, taking the under-12s. The whole Club is very upset at this injury, which was a freak event and no blame is attached to any opponent.
"We will lose an excellent player during the run in until the end of the season, but all our efforts must now go into the player's recovery. Brianna underwent surgery at the Bath Royal United on Tuesday morning and I was especially pleased with the support given to her by our reserve team staff, manager Paul Exton, who was at the hospital until 2am Monday morning along with his daughter Laura, who plays right back, and his assistant Andy Clark together with all the players who have made such a distressing incident a little more bearable for Brianna, which is what we would have expected from a community based club like Keynsham."
Women's Soccer Scene would like to join everyone at Keynsham in wishing Brianna a speedy recovery from her horror injury.
