Tributes Paid to 13-Year-Old Teenage Footballer Who Died After Collapsing on Pitch in Nottingham

By ITV News

Tributes are being paid to Samuel Akwasi, a young footballer from Nottingham who died following a match on Saturday.

The 13-year-old passed away in hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitchWitnesses said the young footballer, who was playing for his club FC Cavaliers under-13s, collapsed during a game on Saturday at around midday.

The game, that had been taking place on one of the grass pitches at the Forest Recreation Ground, was abandoned.

Dvarne Edwards, a sports assistant at the Forest Sports Zone, said he “ran over straight away” after he saw the boy collapse on the grass.

Mr Edwards explained the boy received treatment and that an ambulance arrived within minutes.Samuel was reportedly taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre where he later died. People across the city have paid tribute, describing the teenager’s passing as a “loss to Nottingham”, sending their condolences to family and friends.

Jason Cross, FC Cavaliers U12’s manager paid tribute saying: “Sam was just an amazing kid, he was just such a leader in his team, everybody loved him.”

The headteacher at The Trinity School, Aspley, Nottingham, where Samuel attended school has paid tribute, he said: “Samuel was a gift to our school community and we are so deeply grateful for the privilege of having him with us.

“For those who knew Samuel, he was a kind, friendly and very popular young man. Samuel was a talented sportsman who loved life, he enjoyed school and was known for his huge and endearing smile.”

There will be a minute’s applause at Notts County Women FC’s match tonight, to ‘honour the lives’ of Samuel Akwasi of FC Cavaliers and Jamie Brough of Sports Gateway.

Kushal Sood, a lawyer in Wollaton, said: “It is massively important to understand why these freak incidents happen. It was a similar incident last year.”

The 40-year-old added: “I think everyone wants to know what happened and put an end to this circle – especially when it is a child who died. These teenagers are children. A child’s death is the saddest thing. We have got children of our own so it is easier to relate to this.

“But now it is a time for sadness, not explanations. I hope his family get the closure they are seeking.

“Leanne Woodhead-Groves, chief operating officer at the Forest Sports Zone, said FC Cavaliers were “currently being supported by Nottinghamshire FA”.

In a statement released through the Nottinghamshire FA, a spokesman for the club described Samuel as “very well respected by all his team members”.
