A minutes silence will be held by all Tyncastle football teams, the club said today in a statement, after Under-14s player Jamie Skinner died during a match. The club added that it was is in "total shock" over the matter:
Although Jamie was new to our Tynecastle family, he had up until recently been playing for Hearts, he was a prospect that undoubtedly would have had a bright future in the game.
No words can fully express our grief and dismay at seeing this happen, we can only pass on all our thoughts and prayers to friends and family and hope they will get some strength from the out pouring of love and support from everyone.
Hibernian FC chairman Rod Petrie has said that the "untimely" death of promising midfielder David Paul, 18, had "deeply affected" everyone at the club. He added:
David was a talented and promising young footballer, and a fine young man. Our thoughts - and the thoughts of the entire Hibernian community - are with his family at this dreadful and difficult time for them.
Whilst we understand that people will wish to offer their support, we hope that the wishes of the family for privacy will be respected.
Two youth footballers are reported to have died today in separate incidents, Hibernian FC and Tynecastle FC said.
Hibernian said on their official website that 18-year-old David Paul passed away in the early hours of Sunday, with no suspicious circumstances, while Tynecastle reported the death of 13-year-old player Jamie Skinner during a match today.
Tynecastle FC said Jamie would have had a bright future in the game and everyone at the club was "in total shock" at his death. Jamie moved to the club recently after playing for Hearts Under-14s.
