CONCORD Rangers have set up a fundraising page to assist defender Jayden Randell after he suffered a broken leg against Southend United on Saturday.

Randell broke both his tibia and fibula when contesting a challenge with Blues defender Luke Reeve at the Aspect Arena.

And Concord are now keen to do all they can to help Randell.

Writing on the page, which has already raised £3,000, a club spokesman said: “Jayden works as a self employed bricklayer and will not be able to work until he is back on his feet, so we are asking for anyone who is able to kindly gift towards helping him in his time of need.

“Jayden is a kind hearted young gentleman who we are privileged to call one of our own at Concord Rangers FC, and our club will do everything we can to help him back to a quick and full recovery, and this funding page is part of that effort.

“Thank you to the kind hearted people who’ve helped Jayden in the past 24 hours, and hopefully we can help raise a healthy sum to help him whilst he is unable to earn an income.

“We really appreciate anyone who makes a donation and shares this page.”

Speaking immediately after the game, Blues boss Kevin Maher was keen to wish Randell well.

“First and foremost we hope Jayden is OK and we wish him our best as a club,” said Maher.

“They came together for the challenge and Reevesy feels bad but he shouldn’t do because it was a fair tackle.

“Unfortunately Jayden has come out of it in a bad way.

“Fingers crossed the break is not as bad as they can be and that he recovers as quickly as possible.”
