A lifelong football fan has sadly passed away after suffering a heart attack whilst attending a Watford FC Women’s fixture.
Peter Arokiasamy, who is described as a football enthusiast and lived in Watford for 50 years, suffered the attack during the first half of a home game against Sheffield United on Sunday, November 19.
On-site staff from St John Ambulance were alerted immediately to the incident by stewards, with paramedics and the Crowd Doctor also called to the scene. An ambulance arrived soon after and transported Peter to Harefield Hospital.
The club shared their condolences today (December 6) in a statement: “All at Watford FC were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of [Peter].
“Watford FC representatives have been in contact with Peter’s family – who expressed their gratitude to the club for the timely and expert care he received – and our thoughts are with all relatives and friends at this extremely difficult time.”
