Collins – who had featured eight times for the National League side this term – joined the Glovers in 2019 after being released by Forest Green Rovers.

And he quickly became a fan favourite, with supporters heading to their ground to lay out flowers, scarves, jerseys and emotional messages.

A statement from Yeovil told fans they were welcome to show their respect, as they tweeted: “The club have left an area near the ticket office for supporters to lay flowers and leave tributes to Lee. We miss you, Captain.”

Before adding: “When visiting Huish Park to pay respects, please ensure you remember to follow the Government’s COVID guidelines. Stay safe.”

And fans were quick to visit the stadium in honour of Collins, who leaves behind his partner Rachel and their three daughters.

Police are not treating Collins’ death as suspicious after officers were called to an address in West Coker.

A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset police said: “Officers attended a report of a sudden death at an address in High Street, West Coker yesterday evening at about 5pm.

“Sadly, the body of a 32-year-old man was located.

“His death is not being treated as suspicious and has been referred to the coroner. His family have been informed and our thoughts are with them.”
