An initiative to raise awareness of young sudden cardiac death and to provide a cardiac screening programme for young sports men and women in Thrapston has received the support of a new fund backed by former England cricketer Darren Gough.

The £75,000 Gigaclear Rural Sports Club Fund aims to support teams based in rural communities across the broadband company’s full fibre network, which spans 26 counties.

Thrapston Town Juniors FC approached the fund for help to pay for its cardiac screening programme that started after the death of one of its young players from an undetected cardiac abnormality in 2017.
