"As everyone now knows Russell Isaac suffered a heart attack near the beginning of the game. We were fortunate to be playing at BAWA where St John`s Ambulance are normally in attendance and they were able to whisk him off to hospital to get checked over as he was complaining of chest pains. Our thoughts and best wishes are with Russ for a full and speedy recovery.
He initially went off saying he felt sick but then started to complain of chest pains so it does show that we need to keep an eye on people.
Russ is a top bloke and class player and I do think that his presence was missed as we ran out 3 - 0 winners.
Recliners had plenty of chances but couldn`t seem to take them and we got a bit lucky with an own goal and a penalty (Andy K) from a handball which could have gone either way but their ref called it for us. The one goal we can take credit for was a half-volley worldy from outside the box from Luke H. 1 - 0 would have been a fairer reflection of the game.
Recliners FC Report:
" Thanks to St Brendans for sending best wishes to Russ, the result rather overshadowed by subsequent events, but despite a lot of possession Recliners never really got going and St B's were good value for the win."
