A Look Back At The Life Of Lee Collins


Paul Berry has written an article for the Shropshire Star that looks back at the life of Lee Collins ( on the left of the picture )

'Ask for a description of Lee Collins from those who knew him best and the same replies keep coming back.

Loyal. Strong. Respectful. A leader. A role model. A natural captain.

Qualities which defined him not just as a footballer - and a very successful one at that - but also as a man.

It is impossible to even begin to imagine what Collins’ family are currently going through after their heart-breaking loss last week.

It has been hard enough for what you might call his ‘football family’ to come to terms with, spanning as it does the nine clubs he represented, in doing so chalking up 470 senior appearances and scoring eight goals.

There will have been tributes paid, memories shared and tears shed across all the ports of call Collins stopped off at during his impressive career.

After Wolves that comprised Hereford, Port Vale, Barnsley, Shrewsbury, Northampton, Mansfield, Forest Green and Yeovil, where he made his most recent start in February and had returned from injury to be on the bench for the win over Barnet just a few days before his passing.'
