Blues boss Reynolds’ leg broken in attack

The Waterford F.C. manager Alan Reynolds was subjected to a brutal unprovoked assault in the early hours of Sunday morning last which left him with a broken ankle and facial injuries which required hospitalisation.

Alan was socialising with friends and was watching the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool. He left the pub on his own and was the victim of the assault by at least one assailant and was left in a condition described as "an unrecognisable condition." A friend who was with him had just stepped into a local chipper and when he came out found Alan slumped on the footpath with a passer-by calling the local Gardai.

An intensive garda investigation is under way and gardai have been interviewing friends of the Waterford FC manager as well as people that were socialising in the area at the time. They have also been examining CCTV footage in the area.

Up to lunchtime yesterday (Tuesday) Gardai HQ Press Office said their enquiries were ongoing, and Waterford FC issued a brief statement to the effect that their popular Manager had been the subject of an assault but would not be issuing any further statement due to the garda investigation.

Tramore Gardai have issued an appeal for witnesses to contact them on 051-391620.
