Lee Collins Yeovil Town captain ‘found dead in hotel room’

An inquest opened into the death of Yeovil Town Football Club’s captain, at the Old Municipal Buildings, Taunton, today.

With the consent of next of kin, senior coroner Tony Williams opened the inquest into the death of Lee Harvey Collins, of Newport in Gwent.

A statement from coroner’s officer Ben Batley confirmed that Mr Collins was 32 years old when he was confirmed dead at Lanes Hotel, West Coker, on March 31, 2021.

When the footballer, who joined Yeovil from Forest Green in 2019, did not attend a training session on March 31, enquiries were made at the hotel where he was staying, and he was found dead in his room.
