It is with great sadness that, following the events of Thursday evening, we have to announce the tragic passing of Dylan Rich.
This news has left everyone involved with our club devastated and heartbroken. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his parents Mike & Anna, his sister Lucy & Dylan’s family, friends and teammates.
The club would like to thank everyone within the Colts and wider football community for the hundreds of heartfelt messages and thoughts that we have received over the past few days.
The Club will provide all the support it can to those players and club officials impacted by this tragic event, but for now there are no further words possible, and we ask everyone to respect the family’s privacy at this incredibly difficult time.

Being a defibrillator engineer, I know the importance of having these at every grass root level of sport.
My grandson is 17, named Dylan & has just joined a football academy. We are both heart broken by yet another sad loss to such a young life playing the sport he loved.
We send our condolences to all his family and friends.
I only heard this news while watching Forest last night and I’d like to pass on heartfelt sympathies to Dylan’s family, friends, your club and everyone involved. It must be devastating. 17 is way way too young, just as you are blossoming into adulthood. From everyone I have spoken to in our little corner of Northern Thailand
