Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Radcliffe Borough have thanked fans from across the league and football for the messages of support they've sent Reece Welsh wishing him a speedy recovery.

Officials say they've been "overwhelmed" by the response from supporters and officials at other clubs since the 25-year-old broke his ankle on Saturday while making his Boro debut at Ossett Town.

The First Division North fixture at Ingfield was abandoned soon after the right-back was hurt five minutes from time with the clash level at 1-1 and will be replayed on Tuesday 14 April.

Boro said: "Radcliffe Boro FC would like to thank the Ossett Town physio and staff for all their help and everyone who has sent get well messages to Reece wishing him a speedy recovery. There was an overwhelming response of messages of support for Reece on social media which shows the true meaning of the game at this level."

The former Rossendale United, Stockport Sports and Salford City player only signed for manager Danny Johnson just over a week ago from Premier Division Trafford before the final transfer window of the season closed.

Pictured on Saturday night after treatment and the fitting of a cast, he is reported to be on the mend by Johnson who is preparing his squad to take on Salford City at Stainton Park on Easter Monday.

As well as messages from Evo-Stik NPL rivals including Mossley, Darlington, FC United of Manchester, Salford City, Spennymoor Town and hosts Ossett Town, supporters from Football League clubs ranging from Reading to Bury and Preston North End have been in touch via Twitter and social media to lend their support.

In a message sent on Saturday night, Ossett Town said: "Obviously it an awful way for the game to end. Please do pass our best wishes on to Reece when you see him.

"Our physio was hopeful as horrific as the injury was to see. He thinks the dislocation should heal well and quickly once the hospital are able to do their stuff."
