Luton boss Edwards gives an update on skipper Tom Lockyer’s condition after cardiac arrest

Rob Edwards expresses a special connection between Luton and Bournemouth and provides an update on Tom Lockyer’s condition following his cardiac arrest.

The match between the two teams was called off after Lockyer’s collapse, and he has since been discharged from the hospital after receiving an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD). Edwards acknowledges the emotional response from players, staff, and fans, emphasizing the unique bond between the two clubs.

While speaking ahead of the Hatters’ clash against Newcastle, Edwards said: “It’s been a difficult week for everyone. His family have been the main concern all week and then it’s the players and staff that have been affected. All that matters is that he’s come through and he’s home. It is about him recovering, it is all we care about. Supporting the operation with the ICD being fitted, then we will see going forward what this means.”

Edwards added: “I need to say thank you to everyone at Bournemouth, a special mention to Phillip Billing who reacted quickly. We’ll have a special bond with the club going forward.”

The 40-year-old also talked about the club’s preparation for the coming game: “We already had a plan to have a few days off after the game, so we’ve stuck to that plan. We spoke about what he [Tom Lockyer] means to us and we want to embody that as a team. If we can all act, behave play like Tom going forward, we’ll be going the right way.”
