Michael Palmer, 23

Crowland, who played for Crowland Town FC in England, was rushed to the hospital after collapsing on the field. However, he never regained consciousness.

Following the young player’s tragic passing, his club posted a tweet announcing his death:

“As some of you may already be aware Crowland Town FC tragically lost one of our family members yesterday playing the game he loved. Our player Michael Palmer tragically collapsed during the game and never regained consciousness.”

“He was the most kind, caring person and a passionate Manchester Utd fan and always strived to achieve the best he could and will be greatly missed by all at the club and the local football community,” the club’s statement continued. “A huge thank you to Leverington FC players and staff for their help and respect.”

The referee of the game Palmer collapsed during also paid tribute to him in a statement, saying, “My thoughts and prayers go to Michael’s family and friends. The beautiful game we all love lost a special young man yesterday and he will never be forgotten. Nobody should ever not come home from a football game.”

“I would like to add the conduct of both teams’ players is something you should both be proud of,” the referee added. “Everyone did everything they could to try and help Michael.”

Palmer’s family described him as having a “strong sense of duty” and said, “With fervor and commitment, but with humility and confidence in equal measure, he inspired those around him to work harder, try harder, give a little more, walking alongside them and taking them with him on the journey.”

The family added that it was “fitting that Michael’s passing, notwithstanding the pain for those he leaves behind, was on the grassy velvet of the football pitch he so adored.”

“Michael’s loss will be forever felt,” they said, “and hurt fades to scars, his light will shine the brightest in our galaxy of stars.”

“We should take solace in this pain, that Michael will never be forgotten, and we will all remember his name.”

Palmer’s tragic death adds to the long list of healthy athletes suddenly dying since the Covid vaccines were rolled out.

Since Covid vaccines were pushed onto the public, 1,800 people have collapsed and 1,200 athletes have ultimately died.

Before the vaccine was a factor, there are about 29 deaths/collapses in athletes globally under the age of 35. Now, in a post-vaccine world, the United States recorded 89 deaths in January 2022 alone.
