Premier League Decides to Replay Abandoned Bournemouth vs. Luton Clash Following Luton Captain’s Cardiac Arrest.
The Premier League has announced the full replay of the match between Bournemouth and Luton, which was abandoned after Luton’s captain, Tom Lockyer, suffered a cardiac arrest on the field. The league match at Vitality Stadium on Saturday saw Lockyer collapse in the second half, prompting immediate medical attention on the field.
With players from both teams emotionally affected and deemed unfit to continue, the decision to abandon the game was collectively made in the 59th minute.
At the time of abandonment, the score was level at 1-1, and the league has confirmed the rescheduling of the match later in the season. In a statement, the Premier League expressed gratitude to the medical staff and all involved for their swift response to the distressing situation.
Lockyer, the 29-year-old defender, is currently hospitalized and undergoing tests, with the latest update indicating that he remains responsive and in stable condition since the incident on Saturday night.
This unfortunate incident follows Lockyer’s previous collapse in May, leading to heart surgery, adding further gravity to the concern for the player’s health and well-being.”
