Tragedy strikes at pre-season friendly

Very sad news has been received that Junior Dian aged 24 passed away during the early hours of this morning (08/07/15).

Today, football at Tonbridge Angels very much takes a back seat as everyone at the club tries to come to terms with this devastating news.

Earlier the previous evening, Junior, a trialist with the club had suddenly collapsed on the pitch without warning during the second half of a pre-season friendly game away at Whyteleafe FC. in Surrey.

Despite the heroic efforts of the two physios present, together with paramedics who attended at the ground and staff at St Georges Hospital, Tooting, sadly his life could not be saved.

Steve Churcher, Chairman of Tonbridge Angels said today: " This is devastating news and our only crumb of comfort is that Junior lost his life doing something he obviously enjoyed so much. All our thoughts and sympathies are with his family. Also I would like to thank everyone at Whyteleafe FC for their support and professionalism during this very distressing incident yesterday evening.".
