Updated Statement
We are glad to update that the player in question is making a good recovery in the meantime. This incident has brought unforeseen national and international spotlight on our small Club in a rural setting. First & foremost, our thoughts continue to be with the player and his family and we would ask the various local and national media outlets to respect the player’s privacy and refrain from the ongoing attempts to make contact with him as recovery is the number one priority. We also ask the various media outlets to refrain from persistently contacting Club members looking for further media interviews, the Club has already issued statement details and have nothing further to add at this time.

Club Statement
Rearcross Football Club would like to issue the following statement:
All at Rearcross FC are totally shocked at the turn of events last night when our Junior ‘B’ team were playing a Division 2 League game under lights and a very serious incident occurred. We are glad to say that our player is well and was discharged from hospital earlier this morning, we wish him a speedy recovery and to let him know that the whole Club is thinking of him and his family at this time. We would like to thank all Club members who were here last night, Ballymackey FC, the match referee and the North Tipperary & District League for their help under such unforeseen circumstances. Our thanks to the paramedics who attended Rearcross FC Grounds last night and the Gardai who are pursuing their investigations. We have nothing further to say at this time.
