Hull youngster Sheaf on the mend after skull fracture
Hull youngster Max Sheaf is recovering at home after suffering a skull fracture during a game, the club has announced.
The 16-year-old midfielder was knocked unconscious in a clash of heads while playing for a Tigers XI against Kenyan side the SportPesa All Stars on Monday evening.
He was treated at length on the pitch before being taken to hospital, but is now continuing his recovery at home.
In a statement posted on the club's official Twitter account, Hull said: "We can confirm that Max Sheaf is now at home & recovering well after suffering a Temporal bone fracture against the @SportPesa All-Stars.
"Everyone at the Club wishes Max a speedy recovery."
The incident came just weeks after first-team midfielder Ryan Mason underwent emergency surgery having fractured his skull in a collision with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill.
