-JW- Posted December 27, 2011 Share Posted December 27, 2011 Gillingham winger Chris Whelpdale suffers split scrotum Gillingham winger Chris Whelpdale suffered an unusual injury in the 2-1 Boxing Day win at Crawley, as a tackle split open his scrotum. The 22-year-old was given treatment to the wound, which occurred late on in a victory that extended the club's winning run to nine games. "It's a horrific injury," boss Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent. "It's absolutely disgusting. He's going to be very sore, and I'm sure his wife won't be too happy either." Hessenthaler confirmed that Whelpdale is now a doubt for Friday's game with Dagenham & Redbridge, along with defender Matt Fish, who limped off during Monday's victory. Whelpdale joined Gills from Peterborough United in July 2011 following a successful loan spell, having made 143 appearances for the Posh. Since completing a move to Priestfield he has scored four goals in 22 games.
