A JustGiving crowdfunding page was set up after he was badly injured playing at Montrose on Saturday.

The page has raised over £1,000 to help the player in his recovery.

Ousman fell to the ground after a challenge early in the game which left him writhing in agony. Play was halted and there was a 48-minute wait before the ambulance arrived.

He was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee after paramedics had administered gas, air and morphine and stretchered him off.

It was announced later that Ousman had suffered a broken tibia and dislocated his ankle, and would be facing a long period of recovery and rehabilitation.

Writing on the JustGiving page, organiser Ian Beresford said: “Ousman See is a part-time player for Berwick Rangers who suffered a serious double leg injury in the game at Montrose.

“As a tiler by trade this means his ability to earn from his normal job is affected, therefore the club is looking to help support him financially over the period of his injury. We are hoping the football community, supporters and the public will come together in support of his situation.”
