Finn Tapp of Oxford City passed a medical exam last week, to go to Love Island.
The defender, who is hired for his club of the National League of the South, but did not tell them that he would fly to South Africa to make his television debut, entered the village on Wednesday.
However, he first had to pass a medical examination, performed by ITV, after a head clash in a 3-0 defeat by Dartford saw him take away. There was also a long strike to treat Tapp, 20, who previously played for MK Dons.

Tapp was reviewed after suffering a head clash during a game against Dartford recently.
Oxford, who says they don’t mind showing up on the show without notifying them first, says the right back was not unconscious. They, and ITV, trust that he did not suffer a concussion, after being evaluated by an independent doctor.
BBC Social Cricket does not work well with talkSPORT
It is safe to say that BBC Social Cricket has not worked well with everyone. The broadcaster hastened to praise audience figures for its coverage of England’s tour of South Africa, a trip for which they lost the ball-by-ball rights of talkSPORT.
When listening to the program, which seems to be an expert providing updates while watching the action on television, Sports Agenda wonders if the BBC is pushing the limits.
TalkSPORT paid decent money for “exclusive” coverage and, although high-level figures at the station are relaxed, BBC actions have been observed. It will be interesting to see what talkSPORT does when the BBC resumes rights once again for the two home series this summer.
Last week, talkSPORT humorously launched a “less cake, more cricket” marketing campaign in a clear jab that surprised regular Test Match Special customers.
Football club forced to change hotel
This weekend, an unidentified football club made hasty reorganizations after booking a night at a hotel to be contacted by a worried local police force.
The place organized a wedding the same day for one of the families of travelers in the area and there was concern that the event could be the goal of another family, with whom the wedding party was not too friendly.
Fortunately, another hotel was found and the players stayed in another place without incident.
Bookmakers refuse to pay after Saracens are relegated
The cunning punters who bet that the Saracens would be relegated with a probability of 250-1 were disappointed, and the bookmakers refused to pay after their fall was confirmed.
The fate of Sarries was confirmed on Saturday after further violations, but those who expect to charge have lost. A bookmaker source explained: “The market rules clearly state that point deductions do not count, that is a standard practice.”

Erik wants to wield the ax
Erik the Viking is alive and well and lives in Cheshire. That is Burnley, who left behind Erik Pieters, who recently wrote to his local council to ask permission to cut a dead tree that he fears crashing on his Wilmslow pad.
The Dutch defender has submitted a request to ax the oak tree, which hangs dangerously on his house, following the advice of experts.
Unlike other spoiled stars of the Premier League, Stoke’s former man has taken matters into his own hands.
Erik Pieters of Burnley has asked his local council for permission to cut a dead tree
“We have been told that the whole tree is dead and sticks out of the house,” he wrote. “It is very dangerous and we are concerned that if one of the large branches or the tree falls on the house, it will cause a lot of damage and problems.”
Pieters, 31, needs permission because the offending oak is protected by a tree preservation order.
The cuts to police resources at Manchester United were brief
The cuts to police resources at Manchester United lasted both games. Following a report by the Council of Chiefs of the National Police, the Greater Manchester Police had cut the numbers displayed within the Old Trafford footprint on game days.
The move was met with skepticism by United experts, who were presumably ignored. But now, two games later, the decision has been reversed with an established tactical group to analyze future deployments.
The racing news? It has been reduced …
The BBC seems to have abandoned horse racing. Sports agenda He revealed last month that Cornelius Lysaght, the respected correspondent, had to leave Radio 5 Live as part of Beeb’s obsession for targeting a younger audience.
It is believed that there are no plans to replace Lysaght, and a look at the BBC Sport website sheds light on the announcer’s contempt for the sport.
On Sunday a report was published at 4 in the morning, which was less traffic, about the appearance of Defi Du Seuil as Chase’s favorite champion after his defeat of Un De Sceaux in Ascot. It was the first new story on the racing page in a week.
Aat least BT will honor Greavsie
The late MBE for former England wicketkeeper Alan Knott was a welcome development, but Jimmy Greaves, scandalously, 80 next month, is still awaiting recognition.
The legendary former Chelsea and Spurs striker is the top scorer in the history of the top English category with 357 and is the fourth on the list of England with 44. At least there is recognition elsewhere.
BT Sport has made a film about Greaves, which comes out on February 8, before his birthday, while a good book written by David Tossell and titled Natural came out last year. Friends say that Jimmy speaks little since a stroke of 2015, but is in “robust” form.
