Sad times. - though begs the question, do we had a de-fib machine at the walks? If not it's surely worth the couple of grand to get one

Now then trust, what about buying one for the club as a kind gesture with no strings attached?

The club employs St Johns who saved that chap a couple off years ago who collapsed when the goal keep helped us after getting a red card.  I also when attending away games carry 2 defibs and a medic kit.

That's all very well and good. I hope others appreciate your work as I do. But thinking for times when you aren't there and the equipment isn't available. At reserve games, youth team games and ladies games. It must be worth the money even if it never gets used (which I hope it will never need to be used)

Following the collapse of the Premier League player ( Malumba ?) on the pitch a few years ago the F A offered defibs at a discount to clubs at all levels.

The only requirement was for a club to show proof of training in its use, which is not difficult to organise and easy to learn as the machines are automatic to a degree.

In the event of a game where St John are not in attendance and I am (in the Stands) I am a St John Ambulance Trainer and qualified Defibrillator Operator. Always willing to lend a hand if needed. Just put a Tannoy  call out for WestLynnMike.

If the club has a defib how about, as a contribution to the local community, exploring the possibility of installing it on an outside wall in a secure cabinet so it is accessible to the public in time of need.

As a matter of interest where is it stored at the moment?

The costs involved in the cabinet is over 1000 plus costs off fitting And the insurance for this too.
