Stags release update on Farrend Rawson
mansfieldtown.net, Mon 26 April 2021

Mansfield Town defender Farrend Rawson is now ‘feeling better’ after the 24-year-old was concussed in Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two match at Salford City, Stags’ head physio Thomas Whittamore has said.

Farrend suffered concussion after accidentally colliding with goalkeeper Jamie Pardington in the second half of the match.

He was then taken to Salford Royal Hospital before being discharged later that evening.

Head physiotherapist Thomas Whittamore said: “Faz was knocked unconscious following a collision with the goalkeeper and removed from the field of play on a stretcher after being knocked out. He was then taken to hospital as a precaution and reviewed by doctors.


“Our thanks are extended to Salford Royal Hospital and Salford City Football Club, in particular Dr. Mubin and his team for their help and assistance in managing Faz on the pitch.”

Thomas added: “I spoke to Faz today (Monday). He has a bit of a headache and is feeling sore, as you’d expect, but is feeling better and improving day by day.

“He will follow the FA concussion protocol to enable a safe return to play once he is symptom free.”

Mansfield Town centre half Farrend Rawson is back in the club as he continues to recover from last weekend's horrendous collision that left him unconscious in the defeat at Salford City.

But, with only two games to go and safety achieved, he is unlikely to be risked again this season.

Rawson was flattened in a collision with sub keeper Jamie Pardington near the end of the 2-0 defeat at Salford City and ended the afternoon in hospital.

He needed extensive treatment on the field including oxygen.

“Farrend is back in but he's not training. He's just doing a little bit of gym work,” said manager Nigel Clough.

“We won't be taking any chances with him with the situation we're in.

“He has come round and he's back on his feet. He still feels a bit groggy and has a bit of a headache. But he is on the way to recovery.

“He won't be involved on Saturday and we have to consider if it's worth risking him for the last game.

“Tom Whittamore, our physio, is very hot on following the protocols.”
