Hem Simay faces an agonising wait

Build Bright United (BBU) goalkeeper Hem Simay is stretchered off the field in agony after dislocating his shoulder during Saturday’s Metfone C-League match against National Defence Ministry at Olympic Stadium. The University backed side were rocked yesterday with the news that their top rated stopper will be out for the rest of the domestic season. BBU Secretary Bunpich Mony said the injury would take a month-and-a-half to heal, a time period that strecthes past the conclusion of the Super 4 playoffs on August 22. The club official warned that Hem Simay would need to be careful during future matches to avoid a painful recurrence of the injury. Lim Tol, Chief Committee doctor of the Cambodian Football Federation also noted the danger of a repeat dislocation “if there are any collisions on the same point,” but asserted that the keeper should expect to recover quickly through regular shoulder exercises. Pitchside medics helped push Hem Simay’s shoulder joint back into place, before he was carted off to the club to begin treatment Saturday. 23-year-old Hem Simay has played for BBU for six years, collecting the best goalkeeper award in the 2009 Samdech Hun Sen Cup competition. He returned to the first team in May, after sitting out for a whole year due to a broken wrist suffered in training. Hem Simay had his shoulder dislocated first during the 2007 Universities Cup.
