Awful, tragic news is reaching Pies this afternoon that former Aston Villa and Bolton defender Jlloyd Samuel has been killed in a car crash.

The Trinidad & Tobago Football Association have released a statement to report that Samuel, who won two international caps for them, passed away after his car collided with an oncoming vehicle.

According to the full TTFA statement, Samuel, who was only 37, was returning home after dropping his kids off to school at the time of the accident. Heartbreaking.

After coming through the ranks at the illustrious Senrab FC youth side in east London, Samuel went on to make almost 200 appearances for Villa before leaving for Bolton in 2007.

Latterly, he finished his playing career out in Iran before returning to England to help manage Cheshire-based non-league side Egerton.

Pies would like to hereby transmit our sincerest condolences to Samuel’s family.
