The supporter, who suffered a cardiac arrest, was taken to hospital and we wish him a speedy recovery.  However, we have no further update on his condition and we are respecting his and his family’s privacy at this time.

The club would also like to praise the swift medical response to the incident. The emergency services reacted very quickly and did an excellent job, giving the supporter the very best possible care.
