Club statement: Richard Brush

Following our fixture against Newry City on Monday evening, our goalkeeper Richard Brush was taken ill as he was returning home.

Richard was taken to hospital, where he remains while undergoing tests.

Cliftonville Manager Barry Gray stated: “It is understandably a very concerning time for Richard and his family, but we should respect their privacy.

“I have been keeping in touch with Richard and was talking to him today. He seems to be a lot better and the hospital are due to run more tests this afternoon. It was a serious incident on Monday night and thankfully he got to hospital for treatment as quickly as he did.”

Everyone at Cliftonville Football Club wishes Richard a speedy recovery and, while respecting their privacy, we offer our most sincere support to his family.
