Lowestoft Town defender Travis Cole has been sent home from hospital with ‘mild concussion’ following a worrying end to the Blues’ pre-season friendly against Norwich City.

The former Ipswich Town defender had opened the scoring with a close-range goal in the 21st minute before the higher-level Canaries hit back to win the game 5-1.

Cole was left prone on the floor following a late corner for Norwich though, getting hurt in an aerial collision and needing lengthy treatment, including from the Norwich physiotherapy staff.

The 19-year-old was taken off on a stretcher around 15 minutes after the game, with a precautionary neck brace on, and taken away in an ambulance to be checked over.

Trawlerboys boss Ady Gallagher had positive news on the centre-back’s condition today though, saying: “Travis was checked over at hospital and was later sent home.

“He had mild concussion and has a stiff neck but is fine. We would like to thank the Norwich City medical staff for their excellent assistance.”
