Laura's neck injury scare
 Women's Football News 28 Nov 2014
Laura's neck injury scare - 28 Nov 2014 - Women's Football NewsNewcastle United goalkeeper Laura Wareham is recovering at home after suffering a suspected broken neck for the second time in her career. 
The 21-year-old was taken to hospital during the first half of their Premier League Northern Division match against Bradford City on Sunday, following an initial collision with fifteen minutes on the clock.
A through ball was chased down by Bradford striker Charlotte Stuart and Newcastle defender Kate Brooks, with Laura coming off her line in the opposite direction to try and clear. In the act of putting the ball out for a corner, the two team mates collided with each other and Brooks left the pitch injured for a short while, with Laura carrying on between the posts.
However just five minutes later, after Bradford had taken the lead, it was clear that Laura could not continue and she was replaced by Megan Borthwick.
Laura then collapsed on two different occasions and was rushed to Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary where doctors quickly diagnosed a neck injury, with an X-ray revealing a suspected break between her first and second vertebrae. This is the second time that she has suffered this kind of injury, having also damaged her neck - albeit in a different place - against Leicester City three years ago.
There has been good news in the last few days though - a CT scan has allayed fears of a break and she has been allowed home.
Laura has since received many messages of support over her injury and she has tweeted: "Just to make you all aware I HAVEN'T snapped my neck. The 1st X-Ray showed a break, the CT scan was clear, I've had another X-Ray & back on Tues to see the neurologist. Hopefully its only ligament & soft tissue damage. I am in a hard collar & resting until Tuesday. Fingers crossed!
"The support I've had from my @NUWFCOfficial coaches & team mates has certainly got me through this injury so far. Appreciate everything."
