Barca 32 player/manager Paul Skipsey had to be taken to hospital by air ambulence after suffering a knee injury during their Workington & District Sunday League clash at Silloth.
Fortunately there were no broken bones and Skipsey was later released but he will need to return to hospital to check for ligament damage.
There are fears he may be out for the rest of the season.
Silloth went on to win the division two encounter 6-1 with Adam Carr and Shane Collins both bagging hat-tricks. Kevin Foley scored for Barca.
This game was one of only two games which went ahead – pitch problems wiping out the rest of the programme.
The other game was the President’s Cup round two clash between Westfield and Waverley.
Westfield came out 4-0 winners with two goals each from Dave Byers and Gary Messenger.
