George Earthy in action against Fulham

Earthy discharged from hospital

West Ham United’s George Earthy has been discharged from hospital after the head injury he suffered in Sunday’s Premier League fixture against Fulham.

Earthy, 19, entered the field as a late second half substitute to make his Premier League debut at London Stadium, only to be withdrawn in stoppage time.

He was immediately transferred to a local hospital for further assessment.

Earthy will now follow FA and Premier League concussion guidelines ahead of his return to play. 

Richard Collinge, Performance Director at West Ham United, said: “George is back home and we will continue to monitor him over the coming days as he completes the graduated return to play programme.”

West Ham United wishes to place on record its thanks to our own medical team, as well as their counterparts at Fulham and Medics24, our pitchside rescue team, for the immediate response to yesterday’s incident.

The Club also extends its thanks for the many messages of support sent to George.

Everyone at West Ham United wishes George a safe and speedy recovery.
