TRIBUTES have been paid to former Chester FC goalkeeper Freddy Hall, who has died at the age of 37.

Hall was reportedly killed in a single-vehicle road traffic collision in his native Bermuda in the early hours of Sunday, April 24. The Bermuda Police Service extended its condolences to the family of the deceased.

The goalkeeper, who made 10 appearances for the Bermuda national team, also appeared four times for Chester FC in the 2014/15 season, playing for free and living in a hotel during his brief time with the club, having impressed in pre-season.

Unfortunately, he was not handed a contract by the Blues and left the club at the end of August.

Chester FC said: "Chester FC are saddened to learn of the passing of former goalkeeper Freddy Hall. We extend our condolences to his family and friends. RIP Freddy."

Hall also played for Northampton Town, Oxford City and Telford United, while also making 41 appearances for Irish side Limerick, being part of their title-winning side in 2016.

He returned to Bermuda in 2018, leaving the club by mutual consent.

Limerick FC tweeted: "It was with great sadness that we learned this morning of the untimely death of Freddy Hall who served the club with distinction during his time here.

"The club extends its sincere condolences to Freddy's family at his tragic passing."
