Alex Shain’s injury shocker

Sadly it has been confirmed that Alex Shain has suffered a clean break to his lower left leg. The injury was the result of a shin clash in the first half of Saturday’s reserve grade win over Prospect United. The Balmain club doctor advises that Alex will be sidelined for up to 12 months, which should mean he’ll be back on the park a few weeks before Jackson Gothe-Snape.
Alex will be sorely missed by the club as he is currently Reserve grade’s top goalscorer. It goes without saying that everyone at Balmain would like to wish Alex a speedy and safe recovery.
