Spoke to the Western Mail:

'I played with Michael and I am struggling to come to terms with the news.'

He trained with the first team every day and he had a very bright future ahead of him.'

I`ve spoken to some of the Hartlepool players and they are all very upset by what`s happened and when they were told of the accident a lot of them were in tears.'

It would have been inconceivable to have gone ahead with the game in the circumstances.'


Swansea City captain Garry Monk has also offered the condolences from all the Swansea City players to the family of Michael Maidens.
