RIP – Shropshire Coach dies of suspected heart attack at football session

It is with great sadness that teacher and Allscot U14 manager Craig Colley, who was head of the English department at Lakelands Academy in Ellesmere, died whilst at the regular evening training session of Shrewsbury Juniors Football Club last wednesday.

Official club statement;

It is with sadness and deep regret that we have to release a status on coach Craig Colley, who sadly passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday evening.

Craig was fairly new to the Allscott setup, joining this summer to form the new U14 side and his impression was felt amongst us all.

His passion, desire and love for the game, his players and parents was something to behold.

Our first team will hold a moments reflection before their game this weekend in honour of Craig.

Our thoughts are with his wife Michelle, daughter Rhian, son Finn and all of his family at this sad time. #WeAreAllscott
