Charlotte Kerr has been released from hospital – with her injuries forcing Sunday’s FA Women’s Championship match between Charlton Athletic and Manchester United to be abandoned.
She needed medical treatment following a collision with Addicks goalkeeper Katie Startup after United had scored.
Charlton Athletic Women put out a statement today. It said: “Kerr was transferred to a local hospital by ambulance. After the results of a scan Charlotte has now left hospital.
“She has been left with badly bruised ribs and sternum. She will now be treated by the Charlton Athletic Women’s medical team who will assist her recovery.
“The Charlton Athletic Women’s team club doctor, medical teams from Charlton Athletic Women, Manchester United Women and the ambulance service were able to prevent a serious incident from becoming a lot worse and the club would like to thank everyone who assisted.
“We would also like to thank all the individuals across the footballing community that have sent their best wishes to Charlotte.”
