Fletcher, 23, is still in intensive care with a head injury following surgery after an ambulance took him to hospital on Tuesday before he underwent an operation.

Now Bath have announced that their next two games, plus a match for their women’s team, have been postponed due to the terrifying and nasty incident.

A statement said: “We can confirm that the upcoming Vanarama National League South fixture against Worthing, and Somerset Cup game against Nailsea and Tickenham have been postponed.

“The Bath City women’s fixture against Wellington Ladies FC has also been postponed.”

It added: “The club would like to thank all those involved for their understanding, as well as the wider community for their touching messages of support.

“We continue to send our unconditional love, strength and support to Alex and his family.”

Bath City first announced the terrifying injury news when confirming an ambulance had been called while providing match updates on Twitter.

The match was subsequently abandoned after Fletcher was rushed to hospital in an ambulance.

Bath City yesterday shared a statement from the 23-year-old’s parents which revealed he has had emergency surgery.

It read: “Unfortunately Alex has sustained a severe head injury as a result of last night’s events.

“He required immediate neurosurgery to stabilise his condition and was then admitted to intensive care where he remains in a stable but critical condition.

“Alex’s family would like to thank everyone for their best wishes that have been sent.”
