Max Woodcock suffered a short period of concussion after his momentum saw him collide with the advertising boards at Macclesfield as he attempted to rescue a cross.
Woodcock needed rapid and expert treatment after the accident and there was a six minute delay in the match. The forward, who scored the Crewe goal in last night’s 2-1 defeat was transferred to hospital for a thorough check over.
The good news was that he soon regained consciousness and was up and talking after receiving the superb attention from the medics.
Alex Morris, the Alex boss said: “By the time I got over to Max, he was fully conscious. It was just a case of ensuring that there wasn’t any damage and thankfully he was okay. He is looking okay, he is a tough kid and
“He went from scoring a good goal to being carried off on a stretcher fifteen minutes later, so it’s though change in emotions that you can get in a football game. His mum and dad were over there and his brother (Ross Woodcock) who were obviously a bit worried but like everybody else they will be thankful that he will be okay.”
