The League & Heartbeat provide cardiac testing

Jill Rogerson of Heartbeat with League Chairman Eamonn McNamara

The Lancashire Sunday Football League has formed a partnership with Heartbeat to provide cardiac testing for Sunday League footballers and referees.

The League which has 85 clubs, playing in 7 divisions and over 2,200 registered players, has decided to transfer its charitable support to Heartbeat based at the former Football Museum at Preston North End.

Heartbeat is a local heart charity based in Preston providing a range of prevention and rehabilitation services to people who are recovering from heart illness and those who are at high risk of developing it. On a weekly basis Heartbeat currently support over 700 people with the aim of improving their health and ultimately reduce their risk of future cardiac illness.

For 37 years Heartbeat has been working in the local communities to raise awareness of heart disease. One in four people in Lancashire are affected by heart disease, the second highest incidence in the UK, Heartbeat exists to help those affected and raise awareness of the risks.

Every week at least 12 ‘apparently’ fit and healthy young people die in the UK from undiagnosed heart conditions. People (14-36 year olds) involved in sport, stress their hearts the most and if they have an underlying cardiac abnormality they are more likely to be at risk, in most cases there are no obvious symptoms. The testing will start on Saturday 30th January.

No-one should take their health for granted as heart issues have recently taken three members of the local football community. Jordan Grant who played for BAE and Springfields died suddenly on the 4th February 2012 aged 17. Mark Duxbury aged 49, died on 7th April 2013 watching his son Adam playing for Lostock St Gerards against Penwortham Town in the Lancashire Sunday League Youth Division. Mark was well known in football circles having played for several local teams.

And most recently fifteen year old Melissa Smith died on Sunday 19 October 2014 whilst playing for Cadley FC girls’ team at Euxton Villa.

Players who would like a cardiac test are asked to contact their club secretary ASAP as the sessions are filling up rapidly.

A substantial amount was collected for the charity by member clubs at the League’s Christmas meeting and Craig Ashcroft of Unicorn FC organised a boxing event and with local Sunday footballers participating at Evoque Night Club which raised over £2,000 for Heartbeat.

League Chairman Eamonn McNamara said, ‘We are delighted to be associated with Heartbeat, an organisation which does so much for people with heart issues and we are sure that it will be a great benefit to our players and referees’.

Jill Rogerson, Chief Executive of Heartbeat said, ‘It is important as a Cardiac charity to ensure we deliver early intervention and prevention services if we are to contribute to a reduction in heart disease. We are excited about delivering this pilot programme with the football league, it is a great opportunity to support more people and raise awareness of heart disease and the devastating effect it has on people’.
