KILBIRNIE Ladeside have confirmed that club secretary Gordon Ronney was involved in a car accident at the weekend.

Gordon is currently in hospital having received reconstructive surgery to his right thumb. He also suffered a fracture to his right hand.

It was confirmed that all others in the car walked away with only minor injuries.

Well wishes poured in from those involved in the lower leagues of Scottish football alongside Kilbirnie, with over 50 replies coming in following a club statement on Twitter earlier this week.

Gordon will be keen to get back and watch his beloved Ladeside as soon as possible, as a fan as well as club secretary.

Everyone at the Herald is wishing Gordon a speedy recovery.
