A broken leg and knee ligament damage. Awful. Could even be career ending for him..

Ligament damage is usually a year anyway, but a broken leg along side it? Awful news.

Is it ACL?

All the club announcement says is knee ligament damage.

Best case is the MCL, but all knee ligament damage is very serious :thumbdown:

Sad to hear for any player, but does he have outside employment & will he be paid by other employer if long term off work?

Worth considering a GoFund Me appeal to raise money for him?

Sure fans of many clubs would be willing to help him out if long term sick

This is the club announcement.

News on the two injured players


Sam Muggleton and Terry Galbraith were both taken to Darlington Memorial Hospital for treatment after sustaining injuries during Saturday’s home game with Southport.

Sam has sustained two injuries – a partial fracture of his femur, and knee ligament damage caused by a dislocation. He will be having a further scan on Monday to assess the extent of the damage.

Tez has suffered a partial concussion, and will be ruled out of Wednesday’s home game against Brackley.

We’re sure that everyone connected to the club would like to wish both players a speedy recovery, and we would also like to thank the medical staff for their care and attention during and following both incidents.

It says that it's knee ligament damage caused by the dislocation. However, any dislocation of the knee will cause some ligament damage. It's not worth jumping to conclusions. I had the same knee injury and it was 6 weeks in plaster followed by single-leg work on the weaker knee due to muscle wastage. If he doesn't need surgery then best case scenario is fit for pre-season.

Isn’t he employed full time by Chesterfield? If so he will still be on full pay and will be looked after by the PFA if he is released in the summer still suffering from the injury. A go fund me page is a bit OTT.

True, you *can* get knee ligament damage which isn’t a tear of course... but from a dislocation, I believe it’s much more likely that he’s dealing with a tear.

It’s awful news for the lad either way. Obviously he isn’t our player, but at this level such a bad injury is terrible news. Hoping he makes a speedy recovery and hoping for the best.

Terrible injury for him and he's out of contract at Chesterfield at the end of the season. No doubt he regarded his time with us as a good opportunity to get some game time with a view to getting a deal somewhere for next season. He'd looked solid enough and that throw is one potent weapon. Hope he recovers well and is able to get his career back on track.

Yeah, a dislocation will at the very least stretch the ligaments. Luckily mine were just badly stretched. Fingers crossed that's the case for Sam.

All three. That is horrendous. On top of that, I assume the break will slow recovery of the knee ligaments. Poor lad.

A broken leg, a dislocated knee, every ligament in his knee ruptured and torn, as well as a torn tendon.

I'm no doctor but I'll be amazed if he ever plays again. It's the stability of the knee when recovered which will be a problem.

Some of the older people may remember but a Spurs player called Danny Thomas had a very similar injury in the 80s, which he never recovered from - all tendons ruptured in the knee. I remember seeing a picture of it in the paper, his leg buckled out of shape at the knee joint - it was spew inducing, worse than looking at a broken leg.

Poor bloke, hope he can somehow recover.

That last sentence sums up my feelings, and probably those of most football fans everywhere.

Terrible injury - I hope the lad can recover.

The first stage is to be able to lead a full life and not be mobility limited, football is a secondary goal to that.

Really upsetting news this, really liked the look of him in the 2 games, just a young lad with a football career ahead of him suffering an injury like this.It will be a long road back and with advances in medical science fingers crossed he will resurrect his career.Really hope so

He may well not play again, and that's desperately sad, especially as he was a professional hoping to make his way in the game.

Any ligament injury is usually around a year anyway, but it involves ongoing work on building stability in the knee through regular exercise... which he can't really do if his leg is also broken.

It's just about the worst injury you can have in footballing terms. I hope Chesterfield and the PFA have something to support him, as he's out of contract in the summer also. Genuinely gutted for him. I don't think i've ever even heard of a footballer breaking their femur before, but combined with the rest... ouch.

What did John McClelland do in that game at Hartlepool? Sickening.

No.Two players going for a 50/50 that unfortunately had a dreadful outcome.I don’t think for a minute the lad meant to “do” him.Really hope he gets back into the game.

I sort of agree. It's a full blooded 50/50, and while he clearly means to take the man with him, i don't think he intends to cause injury.

The reaction afterwards however, is one of a cnut.

Yep, it was a 50/50 and entirely accidental, but the Southport player's reaction was one of a grade A cokc.
