Nottinghamshire all-rounder Paul Coughlin has suffered a dislocation to his right shoulder in the final match of the England Lions’ tour of West Indies, after landing awkwardly in the field.

The 25-year-old will fly home tomorrow (Tuesday) for further assessment, having been kept in hospital overnight in Antigua, and will miss the North v South series.

“It’s an extremely cruel blow for Paul as he has had a good winter for the England Lions and was just about to join up with Steven Mullaney and Paul Franks as part of the North squad for the North v South series,” said Mick Newell.

“He always puts in 100% on the field and sometimes these things can happen.

“The first thing for Paul is to get back to England where we can assess the injury further and from there we can get him all the treatment he needs.”
