Former Wolmer's Boys Footballer Dies after Collapsing during Football Game


The Wolmer’s Boys’ School community is mourning the death of former student athlete Calvin Kelly who collapsed suddenly and died while playing a game of football on Sunday.

Kelly represented Wolmer’s in football and was a member of the Super Cup-winning Wolmer’s team in 2016.

Kelly was a first team member of the team that lifted the cup by clipping Cornwall College 1-0. The team eventually lost to Jamaica College in the Manning Cup finals that year.

Cardiac arrest is suspected but no autopsy has yet been conducted to ascertain cause of death.
