Fans raise thousands after non league player collapses and left in critical condition

Fans raise thousands after non league player Cameron Beckles collapses mid-game and left in a critical but stable condition.

The 20 year old Corinthian FC defender has undergone two surgeries and remains in hospital after collapsing last week (25th November).

The game against Larkfield and New Hythe was subsequently abandoned in respect, with the player’s health at mind of everyone in the stadium at the time.

The GoFundMe page reads: “In the 40th minute of Corinthian FC’s Kent Senior Trophy match at Larkfield and New Hythe, our player Cameron Beckles collapsed on Saturday 25th November.

“The management, players and in particular the physios of both sides acted swiftly and with complete professionalism and we offer our thanks to Larkfield for this.

“Cam was taken by ambulance to Maidstone Hospital and then transferred to a London hospital for surgery on Saturday night. He then required further surgery on Sunday afternoon and he is currently in a stable but critical condition and will continue to be monitored closely over the next 48 hours.

“All of our thoughts and prayers are with Cam and his family, and we at Corinthian FC continue to support them in any way we can.

“We will provide further updates as and when his family wish for this information to be shared.
