Now what is it with the welsh sporting athletes and golf buggies? Remember the Andy Powell incident?
Well it seems it was the turn of Swansea City ‘star’ Alan Tate. On Sunday 28th August the official Swansea City FC website announced that Tate had broken his leg in a bizarre golf buggy incident!
“Swansea City have been dealt a bitter blow with news that defender Alan Tate has broken his leg in a bizarre golfing accident.
The club’s vice-captain was a passenger in a golf buggy that lost control at a local golf club this afternoon and he caught his leg against a tree.
Tate was taken to Morriston Hospital by ambulance where he was diagnosed with a fractured tibia of his left leg which could keep him out for up to six months.”
The incident has caused some heated banter over at the Cardiff City Message Board. With some of hilarious comments so far:-
Eric the Half a Bee – Will he be out for fore months?
Stevie P – Mr Tee has been told that there’s a fairway to go before he fully recovers.
Yemeniblue – A birdie tells me he’ll be feeling below par for a while….
Dandywarhol – Rodgers was quoted as saying “that’s putt us in a hole now”
Valleys Viagra – He also mentioned he was a cracking player. Any club would want to snap him up!
Kaiser Jirga II – also heard that Gary Monk went to see Brendan Rodgers about the injury and asked “How are we going to replace him?”, Rodgers pointed to the coffee maker in his office.
Not eddie may supplies us with a new chant for Tate –
There’s a Beaker in the bunker, feeling rather low
He’s lying there in pieces with a buggy on his toe.
His leg is swelling quickly and the skin is going red,
He looks up to see a Cardiff fan pissing on his head.
He’s forced to use a Swansea shirt to wipe piss of his face,
Tough luck, thats life when youre the facking loathsome Alan Tate.
