Leeds United academy graduate Jack Clarke has been receiving an outpour of support since being hospitaliSed on Saturday, and Ian Harte has shared a message from the Clarke family thanking “everyone who has sent messages”.
The 18-year-old midfielder was watching the action on the Riverside bench at the weekend, having been replaced at half-time, but started complaining of feeling unwell.
Paramedics rushed to the teenager’s aid and later stretchered Clarke away before being admitted to hospital, though thankfully he was released on Sunday.
The Whites’ Chief Executive Angus Kinnear confirmed: “Jack spent the night under the supervision of the medical staff from the club and he will return home today (Sunday).
“He will undergo some more tests this week and everything is looking well, but he won’t train for the rest of the week.”
The Clarke family, per Jack’s agent Harte, also shared their thanks to anyone who offered their support over the weekend, and fans did not stop there…
Thank Ian for passing our request on and thank you for everything you do for Jack and our family

Football has had a couple of Tragedies this season and with Jack Clarke being unwell it was a real worry. It is Fantastic that football fans from all over have put rivalries aside and wished the young lad all the best. Well done to the Leeds & Boro Medics.
