Injury blow for Wentworth: Alvey’s broken leg a sour end to Roos’ win over South Mildura

WENTWORTH coach Mark Alvey is almost certain to miss the rest of the Sunraysia Football and Netball League season after receiving two breaks in his leg.

It was a sour end to a great day for the Roos, who appear to have the finals double chance sown up after recording a 20-point victory over South Mildura.

Late in the final term, Alvey was stretchered from the ground after copping an accidental kick to the shin in a contested situation.

Wentworth Football manager David Swain yesterday confirmed the news was not good for the former AFL midfielder.

“I was talking to him last (Saturday) night and he received two breaks in his leg, and is now in a plaster cast,” he said.

“It would be an absolute miracle if he was to play again this season.

“I’m not entirely sure if two bones were broken, or if both breaks were in the one bone, but whatever way it went you have to feel sorry for the man.”

The Roos will have to reassess their game plan to cover for the coach after they bounded away to victory in a low scoring encounter 11.12 (78) to 8.10 (58) to sit a game clear in second place.
