LITTLE Oakley footballer Richard Green has been overwhelmed by messages of support, since breaking his leg in last week’s Border League Knockout Cup semi-final against Great Bentley.

The last-four contest had to be abandoned just after half-time and will now take place on March 29.

“Richard has broken his leg just above the ankle,” confirmed Oakley joint-boss Paul Sadler.

“I’ve been to see him and he’s in quite high spirits.

“He’s been overwhelmed by the messages and support he’s received from not only his own club but also people outside, including other sides, friends and referees."
