It is unlikely that Brinton Nute will play again this season after breaking his ankle in Saturdays 0-2 defeat by Torpoint.

In only his 4th.game for Bodmin it happened after a challenge with Martin Piper,the Torpoint keeper which also saw him receive the Red card.

BODMIN Town's recent signing, Brinton Nute, is unlikely to play again this season after breaking his ankle.

The former Liskeard, Saltash United and Falmouth Town defender suffered the injury during last Saturday's Carlsberg South West Peninsula League premier division defeat by Torpoint at Priory Park.

Nute went down in agony after a challenge with Torpoint goalkeeper Martin Piper in the 82nd minute, and as he received treatment on the sidelines, Nute was shown the red card by Plymouth referee David Goard.

Bodmin boss Darren Gilbert confirmed last night: "Brinton has broken his ankle. It's a bad blow for him and another setback for us. Every time we get a player injured, it seems to be serious.

"We've already lost Stevie Ovens with a broken leg this season; now Brinton is facing a long lay-off."

Nute started the season with Saltash but was enticed back to Falmouth, where he had been player of the year last season.

But he departed Bickland Park in December and made his Bodmin debut in their 4-0 victory over St Blazey at Blaise Park on December 20.

Saturday's game against Torpoint was only his fourth appearance for the Priory Park club.

Bodmin also have concerns about utility player Lewis Reed, who has suffered a recurrence of a calf injury after getting a kick on it during the Throgmorton Cup quarter-final against St Austell last week.

So Nute gave the GK a late challenge broke his nakle and got a red card for efforts :SM_carton::SM_carton:

Would you still be saying the same if he punched another player in the face and broke his wrist in doing so?

Or elbowed another player and broke his arm? I think not, the fact that he broke his ankle is neither here or there the fact is that he committed a bad foul. End of.

Forget the football, I just hope that he is able to carry on working or has an understanding employer. In this day and age, some things are more important than gods wonderful game.
