It was with great sadness that the news of the tragic death of footballer Lee Collins was announced last week, aged just 32.
Lee was a longstanding client of the Kangs Solicitors Sports Law Team and our relationship with him spanned his entire professional career.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his young family, friends and colleagues at this deeply sombre time.
The announcement of his untimely death was widely covered throughout the news and sports media:
Lee was a unique character who was appointed club captain at Port Vale, Northampton Town, Mansfield Town, Forest Green Rovers and Yeovil Town. He was a true leader on the pitch and much admired by his fellow playing and coaching professionals.
We had the privilege to act for Lee in relation to all of his transfers between clubs and he was an absolute pleasure to deal with.
His untimely passing will be a huge loss to many people. We can honestly say that he was one of the nicest people we have had the pleasure of representing and he will be deeply missed by the team at Kangs Solicitors.
May God rest his soul in peace and thank you Lee for all the happy memories.
