Bromley have confirmed the supporter taken ill at today’s match with Yeovil Town has died.

The incident saw the National League fixture abandoned with just 11 minutes played and the game goalless.

In a statement, the club said: “Bromley Football Club can confirm that our home fixture with Yeovil Town on Saturday 3rd December was abandoned shortly after kick off due to a medical incident.

We wish to express our sincere gratitude to the supporters who flagged the incident, medical teams of both Clubs, as well as Doctors within the crowd who assisted stadium paramedics until the ambulance crew arrived and transferred them to hospital.

Despite the best efforts of all involved, the Club have since been informed that the supporter has sadly passed away.

Everyone at Bromley Football Club is deeply saddened by this news and we extend our heartfelt condolences to the supporter’s friends and family.

Match referee Lloyd Wood took both sets of players off the pitch after 11 minutes with the game level at 0-0 and, following a 45 minute delay, whilst supporters waited for further instructions the game was abandoned.

The game had been paused on seven minutes with the players waiting by the dug-outs before resuming play for four minutes and then being taken off the pitch.

Paramedics were clearly visible with the supporter in the stand behind the goal the home team were shooting towards in the first half.

Yeovil captain Josh Staunton posted a message from the club’s players on Saturday afternoon:

 

The thoughts of us here on the Gloverscast and all Yeovil Town supporters are with their friends and family of the supporter who has sadly died.
