29-Year-Old Professional Soccer Player Suddenly Collapses Without Contact on Field

On Saturday, the English Premier League match between Bournemouth and Luton Town was suspended after Luton’s 29-year-old captain Tom Lockyer suddenly collapsed without warning near midfield during the 59th minute.

Referee Simon Hooper halted play when he saw Lockyer on the ground, and players from both teams as well as medical staff rushed to his aid.

At the time of suspension, the score was 1-1.

WATCH:

Pro Soccer Wire revealed the match was abandoned 25 minutes later, and both teams made their way to their respective locker rooms. The crowd reportedly chanted Lockyer’s name while he was down.

Luton Town posted a statement on X stating that Lockyer is responsive but did not specify what caused him to collapse.

They also expressed gratitude for Bournemouth and the medical staff from both sides for their prompt response.

Additionally, they apologized to fans for not being able to continue the match, as well as thanked them for their support of Lockyer and singing his name.

Lockyer experienced a medical episode during last year’s English Football Championship playoff final between Luton Town and Coventry City, prompting him to be substituted out of the match.

He was subsequently taken to hospital, where he celebrated Luton’s promotion to the Premier League. After being medically cleared, Lockyer returned to playing within days.
