Yeovil Town have announced the sad news that their captain Lee Collins had died suddenly aged 32.
He played his last game for the club on 6 February against Stockport.
Yeovil, who have not revealed the cause of Collins' death, were due to play Altrincham in the National League on Friday but the game has been postponed.
Collins, a defender, played for the Wolverhampton Wanderers academy before turning professional in February 2007.
He had loan spells at Hereford and Port Vale before moving to the latter club on a permanent deal in 2009. Collins made over 100 league appearances for Port Vale and was later named as the club’s best left-back of the 2010s in a public poll.
After leaving Port Vale, Collins played for clubs including Northampton, Mansfield and Forest Green. He moved to Yeovil in 2019 and made 32 appearances in all competitions during his first season at the club.
