Non-league footballer dies after collapsing on pitch

A non-league footballer died after collapsing on the pitch during a match on Monday, his club has announced.

Shaw Lane defender Daniel Wilkinson, 26, collapsed during a cup game at Brighouse Town's St Giles Road stadium.

He was treated on the pitch before being taken to Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax.

"He was such a great lad. I don't know how we move on," Craig Elliot, manager of the Barnsley-based club, who play in England's eighth tier, told BBC Sport.

"It's just devastating. Everyone went to the hospital. We all deal with it in different ways, but we just have to support the family as much as we can.
