The club sends sincere wishes for a speedy and full recovery to Colin Titley, who is in Manchester Royal hospital recovering from a heart attack and head injury which occured at the club on Monday evening. 

Former player and club member Colin suffered a cardiac arrest and collapsed in the Eccles RFC car park, after leaving the astro pitch, following his participation in a Walking Rugby session. He was discovered by team mates who attended to him and administered CPR until the Emergency services arrived. Colin was taken to hospital by Ambulance where 3 stents were fitted to overcome a blockage. A brain scan has shown his head injury, caused by the impact when he collapsed to the floor, not to be serious. The club has today recieved a message from Colin's daughter, Charlotte, to confirm Colin is now conscious and off the ventilator and remains closely monitored by cardiac and neurology teams.

We hope this update helps to reasure members who were alarmed by a report published in the MEN yesterday and concerned for Colin's welfare. Members of the Walking Rugby Group are in contact with the family if you wish to send a personal message.
