Footballer Dies At Yorkshire Match
Non-league defender Daniel Wilkinson has died after collapsing on the field during a match with his club Shaw Lane in Barnsley.
In a statement posted on their Facebook page, the Northern Premier League Division One South side said that Wilkinson, 26, "passed away after collapsing on the pitch'' during a game on Monday night.
The league's official website said the player "suffered a suspected heart attack'' and was treated by medics for over 30 minutes before being taken to Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax.
Barnsley-based Shaw Lane were facing Brighouse in a local cup match.
Chairman Craig Wood added in the statement:
"Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time.
"The club would like to thank everyone for their heartfelt messages and thoughts that we have received throughout the night. There are no more words at this time.''
Wilkinson started his career with Hull before moving into the non-league set-up.
