It's been confirmed that our former defensive left back, Kevin Austin, has passed away aged 45 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. RIP.

RIP Kevin Austin, as others have said - 45 is no age.

He played for a lot of clubs - I think 12 in total and seems to have been very popular with fans at all of them judging by the tributes on social media.

As others have said, its sad news that someone so young dies
