Things that go BUMP …
It’s important to realise how serious a head bump can be… and what we mean by a head bump and concussion.
It could be getting directly hit in the head by a ball or another player, or just falling or bumping into another player with enough force to jar your neck. You don’t need to be knocked unconscious to suffer concussion.
What causes concussion?
Concussion can be caused by a direct blow to the head, but can also occur when a blow to another part of the body results in rapid movement of the head (e.g. whiplash type injuries).
Onset of symptoms
The first symptoms of concussion typically appear immediately or within minutes of injury but may be delayed and appear over 24-48 hours following a head injury. Over the next several days, additional symptoms may become apparent.
Loss of consciousness (being ‘knocked out’) does not always occur in concussion (in fact it occurs in
less than 10% of concussions) and is not required to diagnose concussion.
A concussed player may still be standing up and may not have fallen to the ground after the injury.
What should you do if you suspect that you or another player may be concussed?

CHARITY MEMORIAL MATCH
So many thanks to everyone who took the time to come along yesterday evening to commemorate our dear friend and, walking footballing all round great guy, Mr Eddie Boyd.
It was fantastic to welcome Julie, Eddie’s wife and so many lovely members of Eddie’s family.
Also in attendance were players and supporters past and present from the club, four representatives from the main club committee as well as 2 players from the clubs junior teams making it a really great footballing family and community evening to remember our Eddie.
May I take this opportunity to also thank all of our walking football family and friends who have contributed to Eddie’s Go fund me page in aid of McMillans.
Thanks to your generosity, love and respect you have now raised over £600 which is absolutely amazing, a true testament to yourselves and how regarded Eddie was.
Special thanks to John T at the club for setting up the page you’re a ⭐️!
A sad but glorious evening ( and the rain held off) and I just wonder what the great man himself would have thought of it all? Love and respect to everyone it is an absolute privilege to be part of such a wonderful bunch of people😊⚽️⭐️👏🏻
Over 70s Opportunity
A message from Kev, the league sec…
Frank is hoping to stage an extravaganza of football at Callywith on 4th Feb 2024
First step have any of you got a 70 plus team of 6? Please take into account that any of your 70-year-olds who play for the CRT are already accounted for.
If you can't manage a team of 6 but have 2/3/or more 70yr olds please get them to email me and we will put them into a pool to make up teams to play among others (hopefully) the SW Team -CRT 70s Devon and Dorset.
Similar invites will be put out to your 60plus and 65plus teams in due course
if you are over 70 and interested, please let us know this week so that we can get back to Kev and support this event. ⚽️
