Ex Charlton & Gillingham Keeper George Howard In Critical Condition In Hospital

LFE is saddened to hear that former Charlton and Gillingham goalkeeper George Howard has been involved in a serious car accident.

The 20-year-old was involved in the accident on Friday while on holiday in South Africa and has been in a coma for the last five days on life-support.

His friend Martin Di Fede has set up an online fundraising page to support George’s family which has raised over £4,500 in the first 12 hours of the site being created.

Initially, the funds were to go towards George’s treatment, estimated to cost £15,000 a day.

However his insurance company has now agreed to pay for his care so the money will be used to help his family stay with George in South Africa.

Martin has written on the site: “For those who don’t know George he is a talented, driven, focused and enthusiastic young man who with his infectious personality makes people instantly warm to him.

“For those who do know George know that no words can describe what a great friend he is to so many.”

Gillingham manager Peter Taylor said: “I am absolutely devastated to hear of the news and we are praying for his recovery. My thoughts are with George, his family and friends at this difficult time.”

LFE chief executive Alan Sykes, added: “Everyone at LFE is saddened by this terrible news – all our thoughts go out to George and his family at this difficult time.”

Donations are being collected for George’s rehabilitation and to help his family remain in the country with him – you can show your support for George by clicking here
