The Yeovil Town supporter who was taken ill at the Easter Monday derby at W*ymouth had “a comfortable night” in hospital, her sister has told fans.

The National League South match was abandoned with Yeovil trailing 1-0 after 77 minutes following a delay of more than 40 minutes as the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance landed on the pitch at the Bob Lucas Stadium.

The supporter was taken by ambulance to Dorchester County Hospital and her sister posted on the Ciderspace Facebook to thank fans for their good wishes on Tuesday morning.

In the post, Louise Goodland said: “The lady in the emergency at Weymouth yesterday was my sister, she is in the Intensive Care Unit, she has had a comfortable night. Thank you for everyone’s help and good wishes.

In a statement posted on Tuesday, the club said it was talking with the National League around the outcome of the fixture and thanked the Air Ambulance Service for responding so quickly.

The statement said: “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. We will provide an update on this as soon as we are able. 

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.

We are sure we speak for everyone when we wish the supporter the best in her recovery and hope to see her back at Huish Park at some point in the future.
