A Derry club match had to be abandoned this evening after former inter-county All Star Kevin McCloy was rushed to hospital during the championship encounter.

The second round of the Derry championship took place in Owenbeg when Lavey took on Magherafelt.

At one point during the match, it became apparent that Lavey captain McCloy (35) required medical attention.

Paramedics were called to the sports ground ten minutes into the game.

Match officials decided to abandon the game and McCloy was then rushed by ambulance from the ground.

It is understood that the inter-county player is in intensive care in Althnagelvin Hospital in Derry.

"Our captain Kevin McCloy has now been transferred to the hospital and is showing signs of improvement," the club tweeted earlier tonight.

Clubs, players and the general public have taken to Twitter to offer their support for the GAA stalwart.




Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness has shared his "thoughts and prayers" for the young man. "Thoughts & prayers with Kevin McCloy,his family & @laveygac. Warmest best wishes for a speedy recovery.#GAA," he posted tonight.

Derry footballer Marty Donaghy also took to Twitter to voice his concern: "Shocking news from Owenbeg. If what I'm hearing is true prayers go out to Kevin McCloy for a speedy recovery...."
