A leading KU American Footballer suffered an injury that will see him miss the first half of the season when he broke his wrist.

The incident happened in PRYZM nightclub and Luke Felgate, 21, is now unable to play until after Christmas.

The Cougars coach Junior Hayden said: “After picking up a number of niggling injuries last year, coming into the 2018-19 season we were looking to have Luke step up and have a bigger involvement with the team.

Felgate, one of the team’s running backs, had a similar wrist injury in his first year at the club.

“Luke broke his wrist before this years pre-season started,” said the coach.

“However, we have been fortunate enough to recruit a number of players with the potential of playing running back for us this season so this has not affected our preparations for this upcoming season.”

The AMF’s club president, Hamish Mackinnon, 21, witnessed Felgate being restrained with his arms being held behind his back by “at least six” security members at the nightclub.

Mackinnon took Felgate home but suspected he had a broken wrist as he had suffered similar injuries on three occasions before. Felgate went to hospital later.

It is understood police are investigating the incident.

Last season the team won the D1 South division.
