SINNINGTON'S Paul Harland was airlifted to hospital after suffering a serious injury in the RJF Homes Beckett League clash with Black Swan, Pickering.

The 21-year-old went up for a 76th minute header and came down heavily on his ankle. An Air Ambulance flew him to hospital in Middlesbrough.

The top-of-the table division two match was abandoned, with Sinnington leading 3-1.

Earlier, Sinnington goalkeeper Dave Waind was hospitalised with a damaged thumb when saving a penalty from Swan's Ian Greenbank.

Nick Woodhead had put Black Swan in front and Jo Turnbull equalised with a twice-taken penalty. Goalkeeper Dave Sturgess saved the second kick, but Turnbull followed up to score.

An own goal by substitute Dave Baitman put Sinnington in the lead before Waind went off. The Sinners made it 3-1 with Turnbull's second spot-kick.

Rosedale fought back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 at Duncombe Park. Matt Dzierek, Craig Newton (penalty) and Jack Colman put the Helmsley side in control, but Martin Myers pulled a goal back on 70 minutes and John Tindal rescued a point with two goals in the final ten minutes.
