Wrexham keeper Rob Lainton taken to hospital after he was knocked unconscious causing 30 minute stoppage against Bromley

WREXHAM goalkeeper Rob Lainton has been taken to hospital after being knocked unconscious in Saturday's game with Bromley.

A seemingly innocuous clash between the 31-year-old and opposition forward James Alabi left him sprawled out on the turf.


Medics rushed onto the field and both sets of players were told to return to the dressing rooms.

The game was stopped for 30 minutes as Lainton was treated at Hayes Lane.

An ambulance arrived and took the goalkeeper to nearby Princess Royal University Hospital.

Both clubs wished him well as play was eventually allowed to resume.

Bromley posted online: "Everyone at Bromley Football Club would like to offer our best wishes to Rob Lainton in his recovery."

The National League match restarted with 26 minutes added on as first-half injury time.

Lainton came through the ranks at Bolton before stints with Bury and Port Vale.

In 2018, he signed for Wrexham on an initial loan deal and has been an ever-present for the North Wales side this season.

Fans now await an update on the shot-stopper's condition.
