A Bourne Cricket Club match was stopped while an air ambulance landed on the pitch after a player was hit in the head by a ball.

Jamie Bones was playing as part of the club’s cricket week the Abbey Lawns yesterday (Monday) when he dived to catch a square drive from Sean Patchett. The ball bounced in part of the pitch made rough by footmarks and hit Jamie in the head, just above the right eye, causing a deep cut.

Bourne Cricket Club chairman Hedley Stroud said: “He came off with blood streaming and then before the first responder got there he fainted. When she got there the call was out for the ambulance and the helicopter.”

A Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance helicopter landed on the pitch, but thankfully Jamie’s injuries were not to serious.

Hedley said: “Fortunately the first responder gave the appropriate medication and oxygen and he was talking when they put him in the ambulance.”
