Bad arm fracture for Boardman


October 22, 1918
It is not surprising to learn that Ernest Boardman, the burly centre forward, of Bolton Wanderers, who was making his debut last Saturday, has broken his arm. He was in much pain, but, N.U like, he continued to play on till late in the game’s progress. Then he had the attention of Dr James Ferguson and the Bolton doctor. It is an awkward break, I am told, a bone in the forearm being damaged, and there is no likelihood of Boardman showing up in Soccer games again for six or seven weeks.
