Luton Town gives reassuring news of Tom Lockyer, victim of cardiac arrest


By: Manu Tournoux

The Vitality Stadium held its breath this Saturday early in the evening. While Bournemouth hosted Luton Town for the 17th day of the Premier League, Hatters captain Tom Lockyer (29) fell ill and was taken to hospital. A few minutes later, the referee interrupted the match before finally stopping it. After a first press release published on its social networks, the promoted club gave further news of its Welsh captain (who had already experienced a similar episode in the Championship last May), back in a stable condition and undergoing additional examinations in the evening .

“Our medical team confirmed that the Hatters captain suffered a cardiac arrest on the field, but was responsive by the time he was taken off on a stretcher. He received further treatment inside the stadium, for which we once again thank the medical teams on both sides. Tom has been transferred to hospital, where we can reassure supporters that his condition is stable and that he is currently undergoing further tests with his family at his bedside. We would like to thank everyone for their support, concern and messages of love for Locks.”
