Scott remains in hospital undergoing tests after sustaining a serious injury.


Following yesterday's Southern League match against Basingstoke Town, during which Slough Town goalkeeper Mark Scott sustained a serious injury, the club wish to provide a brief update.

The latest news is that Mark has shattered his C6 vertebrae in the base of his neck. Mark is currently at Wexham Park Hospital in Slough, where he remains immobilised and is undergoing a number of tests and scans.

The club wishes to express its gratitude for the professionalism and speed with which Mark was treated by both clubs' physiotherapists, Kevin McGoldrick and Kelly Rutledge. The immobilisation of Mark by Kev and Kelly was key in preventing spinal cord damage.

Thanks is also due to the the match officials, led by Conor Farrell; players, managers and officials of Basingstoke Town; Sam Newman and his team of stewards, Slough Borough Council and club volunteers, who all came together in challenging circumstances to manage the emergency situation.

We will await more news on Mark's condition before making any further statement. The club will continue to offer full support to Mark, Emma and his family during this difficult time and throughout Mark's recovery. In the meantime, our thoughts and best wishes are with them.
