Football hearts logoAnother young player has died of cardiac arrest during training.

This is even more worrying, given that the lad in question was only 17 years old!

We launched a program aimed at acting and working on reducing or checking these sad occurrences. The Football Hearts program has not really been supported as much by the powers that be (many of them are members of this elite platform). We can't stop deaths. But surely we can try and cut it. By checks - medical checks on our players periodically - to detect any underlying conditions that might be aggravated with high intense physical activity. 

Please let's all be alive to this. It is sad to lose young talent in untimely circumstances. Every one we can save is one more than we are doing now.
