Cavan-Monaghan Underage League confirmed their keeper Sam Clarke is recovering after undergoing an operation.

The HSE says it can't comment on claims a soccer player had to wait over three hours for an ambulance after being seriously injured during a match in Monaghan town.

The U17 meeting of Cavan-Monaghan Underage League and Longford Town on Friday evening was postponed after local goalkeeper Sam Clarke sustained a bad injury to his leg just before the half-time whistle.

It's reported that he remained at the Gortakeegan grounds from then until an ambulance came from Sligo at around 11pm.
