Just very sad. Think he was part of the Grays team that produced Kightly, Hooper and Eastwood.

If your are a true blues fan, you have a place in your heart for anyone who represents our club, however many games they played.

Glad he did what he wanted and became a pro footaller. Thoughts with his family.

He was indeed from Grays, and saw him play a number of times for The Blues. Was very useful bombing down the left. So sad, and so young.
