CHARLTON ATHLETIC WOMEN have issued a statement after their Championship clash with Manchester United Women was called off following a horrific injury to Charlotte Kerr.
Casey Stoney’s side went into the lead on 11 minutes through Charlotte Devlin but teams were ordered into the changing rooms shortly after the goal whilst the Charlton defender received treatment.

It was following the goal that the Addicks defender became injured in what looked like a collision with goalkeeper Katie Startup.
Play was stopped for 30 minutes with staff from both teams treating the injured Kerr before an ambulance arrived at the ground.
Almost an hour after the players originally went off the pitch, and following a ‘temporary postponement’ the game was finally called off with just 12 minutes on the board.

Kerr has been taken to hospital and Charlton released a statement a few hours after the game.
It read: “Today’s Charlton Athletic Women’s fixture against Manchester United Women was abandoned after a collision left Charlotte Kerr requiring serious medical attention.
“Charlotte Kerr was transferred to a local hospital by ambulance and her condition has improved. The club will not know the full extent of the injury until a full scan has been completed.
“The club would like to send it’s sincere thanks to Manchester United and their staff for their assistance in treating the injury.
“The club will provide a further update on Charlotte Kerr’s condition in due course.”
The game was forced to be abandoned after all the emergency oxygen had been used at the ground meaning that the requirements for a match could not be met.

There is no official rules which state that an ambulance needs to be onsite for women’s matches but there is a set of sports first aid equipment which has to be “present and in fully working order at each Competition Match.
“Such equipment to include as a minimum a spinal board, cervical collar, fracture splints, crutches,
stretchers, oxygen and a defibrillator.”
The oxygen used to treat Kerr was from the Manchester United medical staff and due to Chartlton not having any on site the referee was forced to call off the game.
The Addicks defender, who is in a relationship with ex-Sheffield United player Elliott Ptak, joined the London club in July 2018 after almost 10 years at Watford.

Due to medical reasons, the referee has abandoned Charlton v #MUWomen.

Charlton vs Manchester United has been abandoned.
United took the lead after 11 minutes but Charlton defender Charlotte Kerr was seriously injured in the phase of play.
After a lengthy delay waiting for an ambulance (which I believe Kerr is now in) the game has been stopped.

Not a sight anyone wants to see on a sports field. An ambulance has arrived on the pitch after a very serious injury to Charlton’s Charlotte Kerr. Play has been stopped for over 30 minutes. Really hope she recovers soon.
