HEREFORD defender Jack Evans has suffered a serious injury in training which was ‘tough to take’ for his team-mates.

The 21-year-old full-back joined the Bulls in the summer from Forest Green Rovers and has been an influential figure in the Hereford side.

However, interim manager Yan Klukowski confirmed the youngster suffered a ‘significant’ elbow dislocation and arm break in training.

“We unfortunately had a really difficult injury at training on Thursday to Jack Evans,” said Klukowski after his side’s 2-0 defeat to Curzon Ashton on Saturday.

“He’s had a significant elbow dislocation and arm break. The group has been hit hard by that, in terms of how loved Jack is, he’s a really bubbly character around the pace.

“He’s a fans favourite here in terms, the way he plays, that forward thrust, energy and enthusiasm. For him to unfortunately have that injury and to be seen like that lying on the floor was tough to take for the group.

“We’ll be wishing Jack all the best in his recovery and hopefully he gets back on the pitch as soon as possible.”

Meanwhile, Klukowski has given an update confirming his personal position regarding the vacant manager role at Hereford.

“I’ve not applied for the role,” he added.

“I’ll just do my best in the meantime and when the club has got any information to myself and the players I’m sure they’ll do that at the earliest opportunity.”
