A WOMAN of 69 died after being hit on the head with a rugby ball as she watched her grandson play.
Jennifer Selwood suffered a brain injury from the stray kick from an adjoining pitch.
The gran, of Taunton, Somerset, spent two weeks in a coma in Bristol's Southmead hospital.
Her grandson Ellis Selwood was playing for the town’s club under-11s.
Daughter Clare Rossiter said: “Mum was the family compass.
“We're completely devastated, just broken.
“She's really missed. We've got a huge hole where she was. We feel robbed of a mum, grandmother, a wife.”
Clare added: “She told Ellis 'I'll stay for another five minutes' and the next thing she's hit by a ball and falls to the ground.”
An inquest was opened this week.
