Cumnock Juniors' match this weekend against Troon has been postponed due to a medical emergency that happened during their midweek match against Darvel.

Cumnock's trip across East Ayrshire to face Darvel was cut short after a member of their coaching staff took ill in the dugout.

Ambulance crews came to the aid of goalkeeping coach, Rab Kerr, who was later taken to Crosshouse Hospital.

The match was then abandoned, with the club then seeing a postponement of this weekend's match.

Cumnock confirmed that the match had been called off, saying they will provide a further update on Rab's condition in due course.

The club said: "Last night's [Wednesday] game against Darvel was abandoned due a medical emergency in our dugout.

"We would like to thank everyone who helped last night.

"We will update you on Rab’s condition as soon as possible.

"Our thoughts are with Rab’s family and friends at this very difficult time.

"We are all with you Rab."

They added: "After the events at our game on Wednesday night we have requested a postponement of Saturday's fixture v Troon FC.

"Thank you to Troon FC and the West of Scotland Football League for their understanding."

Troon confirmed that they were happy to agree to the postponement, and that they're looking for any potential friendly fixures in the meantime.

A Troon representative said: "Following the abandonment of Cumnock’s game at Darvel on Wednesday due to a medical emergency with one of the coaching staff, Cumnock Juniors have respectfully requested a postponement of Saturday’s match, which we have obviously agreed to.

"We would like to wish the individual affected all the very best for a full recovery, and our thoughts are with everyone at Cumnock.

"With Troon now being idle this Saturday, is anyone looking to host a friendly match? Please contact our secretary Richard, or DM us."
