Under 12 Coach Mike Bickerstaffe takes control (again) and raises £230 for the NWAAâ€
On Sunday 30th November the North-West Air Ambulance arrived at Fylde to pick up an U12 Fleetwood prop who had suffered a neck injury during open play and remained on the ground having failed to recover. Fylde U12 Coach Mike Bickerstaffe took immediate control of the situation and demonstrated exemplary leadership in managing one of the most serious events that could be experienced at any level of the game. Within minutes of the injury occurring the emergency services had been called and the player was stabilised pending the arrival of the paramedics. Later in the day news emerged from Fleetwood that their player had been diagnosed with a sprain of the neck and had been allowed home - and we all breathed a huge sigh of relief. Afterwards Mike calmly remarked that he had only done what he had been instructed to do during the Catastrophic Injury Do's and Don'ts training session held at Fylde on 1st November. It's no surprise that he's now promoting attendance at this course across the MJ community - the next time will hopefully be early in the New Year. This weekend Fleetwood returned to Fylde en-masse for U7 to U12 mini-junior fixtures. Once again Mike sprang into action and single handed ran a raffle that raised £230 for the NWAA, which lest we forget is funded entirely by voluntary contributions. Overall Mike's actions over the last few weeks are a testament to his personal commitment to the club and the welfare of all players - he deserves to be applauded throughout the club and across the region.
