Orange footballer in critical condition after weekend assault

An Orange local has been flown to Westmead Hospital in a critical condition, after an incident outside the Royal Hotel.

Adam Ford, a member of the Orange Hawks Rugby League Club, was found lying unconscious on the footpath outside of the hotel, when paramedics arrived at 2:34am yesterday.

Mr Ford is being treated for a fractured skull and bleeding to the brain.

A 23 year old man has been charged in relation to the incident, after being arrested earlier yesterday morning.

The Queanbeyan local has been charged with recklessly causing grievous bodily harm, and a second charge of causing grievous bodily harm to a person with intent.

Orange Hawks president, John Hill, says the thoughts of the team are with Mr Ford’s friends and family.
