We’re sending best wishes to our sponsored Torquay United Women player Danni Wyatt, who suffered a broken toe in Sunday’s (3 December) game at high-flying Swindon Town.
Danni, who is club captain, was injured in a tackle about 15 minutes into the game. “I ended up with a broken big toe and a funny shoe to wear now!” said Danni.
“It’s a good job we’re on Christmas break now, and I can just focus on getting better for next year.”
Swindon won 4-0, but manager Steve Elswood told the Torquay United website: “Overall Swindon deserved their victory, and you’ve only really got to look around to see the amazing facilities to know how strong both financially and appealing this club is to bring in top quality players to their squad. It does go to show how far we’ve come, to come to venues and clubs like this in our journey, that we’ve been looking to achieve for nearly 14 years.
“Our season is not defined by results against Exeter City, Bournemouth or Swindon Town. What’s important for us is our results against the five teams in and around us, as it’s clear that the league has splinted into almost three separate leagues within one.
“So we dust ourselves down and take the positives from today, and the positives from our previous league game at Abingdon and make sure in 2024, we get the results we need against those teams around us to secure National League football and sustainability into next season. That in itself will be a victory.”
This is Torquay’s first season in the National League after finishing top of the South West Women’s League Premier Division last season to gain promotion to the FA Women’s National League Division 1 (South West) – the fourth tier of the women’s game in England.
And in 2020, she was among our friends who featured in the popular comedy promo video With a T.
