The football club would like to thank the emergency services and staff for the way they handled an emergency on Saturday.

The football club can confirm that a male steward was taken ill following Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Rotherham United at the ABAX Stadium.

Following the arrival of an ambulance, paramedics called in the assistance of the East Anglian Air Ambulance, which landed on the pitch, however, it was not required to take the patient to hospital.

We have been informed this morning (Sunday) that the gentleman is sitting up in bed and communicating with his family.

The football club would like to praise the response of its own staff and also all of the emergency services for the way they handled the medical emergency and wish the individual well in his recovery.
