Jeannin injury mars City's Welsh workout

Bridgend 1, Truro City 0 - match abandoned after 15 minutes

TRURO City's final game in Wales ended on a sour note after their game against Bridgend was abandoned following a serious injury to City's French trialist Alex Jeannin.
The former Exeter City defender suffered a suspected broken leg after landing awkwardly after jumping for a header.
Jeannin, who has also had spells in professional football with Darlington, Bristol Rovers and Hereford, received treatment on the pitch, before the referee made the decision to abandon the game.
Following scans it was confirmed that the 31-year-old had suffered a fractured fibula and tibia.
McCarthy had been hoping to run the rule over Jeannin, who has played most of his career as a left-back but can also play in central defence.
Jeannin spent last season in the Conference with Mansfield Town, where he made 26 appearances for the Stags.
