Chris Grange, Athletic’s young goalkeeper, has broken his leg and will probably be out of action for the remainder of the season. The break, a spiral fracture of the left leg just above the ankle, happened at the training ground on Friday. Grange had no contact with any other player and was merely making a routine save but he was immediately taken to the Royal Oldham Hospital. X-Rays have confirmed that the youngster will need an operation as soon as the swelling has subsided. Grange has now been transferred to the Beaumont Private Hospital in Bolton.
