Easthall Boss Reveals Thoughts On Over-35s Tragedy

Easthall Star FC Manager Danny Cameron has opened up on why he came close to quitting football the night an opposing player collapsed during an Over-35s League match – and was later pronounced dead in hospital.

Yesterday, I exclusively revealed the Glasgow East End club were celebrating 30 years in Scottish Amateur Football, but founder Danny admits he will never forget the tragic events events which unfolded that April evening in 2015 at the Greenfield Football Centre, opposite Carntyne.

He said: “I was running our 35s team and it turned out to be my worst experience ever against Carluke.”

“Their player, Kenny Parry, collapsed in front of us, and sadly never recovered despite being taken to hospital.”

“I had to think long and hard about carrying on with any football after that, but we had the honour of winning the Kenny Parry Cup named after him, to hand to his young kids and family.”

“Now for every good or bad thing in football, we think of Kenny Parry, and how he will always be a part of Easthall Star history.”
