The ex-Huddersfield Town and Plymouth Argyle striker suffered the injury last Saturday – in an innocuous shoulder-to-shoulder collision with a team-mate – early in St Ouen F&SC’s Coca-Cola Combination Division I 3-2 victory away to First Tower United at La Hague Manor.

The 30-year-old Muratti player was taken by ambulance to hospital after Saturday’s incident and released the same night with muscle spasms.

Doctors have subsequently discovered he has a broken bone in his neck and he is expected to be in a neck brace for between six and 12 weeks.

Craven is joint-manager at St Ouen with Peter Flambard and Flambard said: ‘I’ve spoken to Dan, he is concerned but, as always, he’s in good spirits as he says he’s disappointed now that he won’t finish leading goalscorer this season.

‘He is having an MRI scan today as he has a bit of tingling in his fingers still.

‘Danny thanks the players, the match officials and First Tower staff at last Saturday’s game for their care and concern shown while he was awaiting the ambulance.

‘This is beyond football and the thoughts of everyone at St Ouen go out to Danny and his family at this time.

We all wish him well and a speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing him out and about again soon.’
