    Schoolboy football players that were affected by a lightning strike during a Manning Cup match on Monday are reportedly recovering with very little ill effects.

    The match between urban area schoolboy football teams Jamaica College and Wolmer’s was called off after several players suffered injuries when lightning struck the field at Stadium East. 

    Two players, JC’s Terrence Francis and Dwayne Allen of Wolmer’s were taken to the hospital following the incident, with another player later admitted after suffering from chest pains.  According to ISSA president Keith Wellington, none of the players seems to have suffered significant injury and are on the improve.

     “Thankfully they have shown significant improvement.  The Wolmer’s young man was treated and released.  One young man when he initially went to the hospital wasn’t speaking or walking but eventually, he came around and he has been moving and speaking,” Wellington said in an interview on the Sportsmax Zone.

    “All the tests that have been done ECG, CT scans have come back with good results.  I think the major issue now is that that the flash seems to have affected their eyes so the ophthalmologists will examine them.  It appears as though they have passed the worst.”
