Update given on Yeovil fan who suffered medical emergency at Weymouth and taken to hospital

An update has been given on the Yeovil fan who suffered a medical emergency at Weymouth and was taken to hospital with the game abandoned.

The Bank Holiday Monday fixture was stopped on 75 minutes with both teams taken off the pitch after an incident in the stands, with an air ambulance soon arriving and landing within the stadium.

Since then, statements have been issued by Yeovil and the ill supporter’s family, and thankfully it’s a more positive update.

Yeovil Town said: “All at the Yeovil Town Football Club send their very best wishes to the fan who required medical attention during the fixture against Weymouth.

“It is moments such as this which place fixtures into perspective. We are extremely proud of the way in which the fans and staff conducted themselves in light of the emergency.

“We would also like to express our gratitude to the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance who reacted so promptly in order to ensure the proper medical treatment was delivered in a timely fashion.

“We are in correspondence with the National League and the FA regarding the outcome of the fixture which is currently unknown.

“Once again, the thoughts of the Club are with the supporter, their friends and family who we understand remains in intensive care and is receiving the best possible treatment.”

Then on the 3rd of April. they added: We have been in continued communication with the family of the fan who was taken ill at Mondayโ€™s fixture against Weymouth and are able to supply the following update:

โ€œShe is receiving the best possible care from the staff at Dorchester Hospital and hopes to be able to be released very soon. She sends her thanks to the emergency services, especially the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance, who were paramount to saving her life with their quick actions. She would like to say a massive thank you to all the supporters and players for their outpouring of support that she has received.โ€

As a football club, we are delighted to hear such a positive update following the distressing events that lead to the abandonment of Mondayโ€™s National League South fixture. We are still in communication with the FA and National League regarding the outcome of the fixture.

And on the 4th of April, a further post came from the club: “We are delighted to announce that there will bucket collectors around Huish Park to help raise money for Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance.

“As a football club, we are pleased to be able to support the charity after the events of Monday that lead to the abandonment of the Weymouth fixture.

“We are also ecstatic to hear the news that Hayley Singleton, the supporter who fell ill, has now been released from Dorchester Hospital. We are very grateful to the medical staff who have looked after one of our own.

“If you are unable to make the fixture you can donate to the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance HERE.”

Weymouth wrote: “A special guest today, Hayley Singleton sadly fell unwell at our game on Monday, leading to an air ambulance having to be called. Today she joined us with her husband, Scott, and their son to thank everyone involved for the care she received at the match against @YTFC She is recovering well and hopes to be back to watching football from the stands soon.”
