PFA offering emotional support to Yeovil Town’s squad

Lee Collins

The PFA is deeply saddened by the passing of Yeovil Town captain, Lee Collins, aged 32.

The thoughts of everyone at the PFA are with Lee’s family, friends and colleagues, and we offer our deepest condolences. Our wellbeing team will be visiting Yeovil Town to offer support to players and club staff during this difficult time.

Lee began his career at the Wolverhampton Wanderers academy and made his professional debut in 2007. He subsequently played for Hereford United, Port Vale, Barnsley, Shrewsbury Town, Southampton, Northampton Town, Mansfield Town and Forest Green Rovers before joining Yeovil Town as captain in 2019.

Player wellbeing is a top priority at the PFA, and we are committed to supporting any players who may have been affected by Lee’s passing. If you feel like you need to talk to a counsellor about this or anything else, please get in touch.
