Family’s donation to football clubs

Have your say

The family of a football referee who suffered a fatal cardiac arrest at a game have raised money for life-saving equipment for nine local grounds.

Roger Evans, from Dronfield, Derbyshire, died after blowing the final whistle at a match in South Normanton in March.

No defibrillator was available at the ground to aid resuscitation attempts.

His family have raised £10,000 to pay for defibrillators at grounds across South Yorkshire and north Derbyshire.
