A pre-season friendly had to be abandoned on Tuesday night due to a serious injury.
St Neots Town Saints’ clash against Team Bury at the Premier Plus Stadium was halted after 47 minutes when visiting goalkeeper Ben Mills sustained a neck injury in an accidental collision.
There was a fifty-minute wait for the arrival of an ambulance to take Mills to hospital.
Saints had powered into a 4-0 lead in their final outing before they make an early start to the United Counties League Division One season with a Sunday morning clash at Thrapston which forms part of an organised tour of groundhoppers to the Northamptonshire area.
Peter Clark struck a post early on before going on to hit a hat-trick after Bamousa Cisse had given Saints the lead.
