Eastmoor Dragons’ return to Pennine League action was brought to an early end after winger Chris Boot suffered a horrendous injury at Worth Village.
Eastmoor were 20-0 to the good against Worth in their latest Division Two clash when Boot suffered a severe break to his right leg.
Boot stepped past the home centre but was then caught by a trailing leg, leading to a break in both his tibia and fibula.
The Dragons winger underwent surgery on Sunday and will now be out of action for a number of months.
Tries from Mark Matthews, Michael Jedynak, Danny Johnson and Boot, along with two Jamie Creed conversions, had put the visitors in control.
Eastmoor will be holding a fundraising event for Boot at 5pm in the clubhouse - after their home game with Crigglestone - on Saturday.
There will be an auction and raffle while any donations would also be appreciated.
