Our Story

On Saturday 12th March, just 17 minutes into an Evo-Stik League First Division South game between Market Drayton Town and Goole AFC, debutant goalkeeper Jack Wheat was involved in a collision on the pitch.

Jack was taken to hospital and later diagnosed with a fractured skull, fractured eye socket, broken jaw and a compressed cheekbone.

He underwent surgery in Sheffield on Tuesday 22nd March to have his jaw temporarily wired and plates fitted.

Due to his injuries, Jack is likely to be unable to work for a considerable length of time and has been told he will be unable to play football again.

Goole AFC have set up this page to help support Jack over the coming months as he recovers from from his injuries.

Many thanks to you all for your amazing support!
