Tributes pour in for Saints fan after sudden death

TRIBUTES have poured in for a popular Saints supporter who died suddenly.

Kevin Sadler, who was born in Millbrook, Southampton, passed away aged 31.

The father-of-three lived in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, with his children and fiancee, Kerry James, but was an avid follower of Southampton Football Club.

The former Millbrook School pupil was well-known among Saints fans thanks to his activity on online football forums and social networking websites.

Saints left-back Luke Shaw led the tributes to Mr Sadler, tweeting to his 31,600 followers: “RIP Kev Sadler.”

Lifelong Saints supporter and The Pink columnist Daren Wheeler said: “I knew Kevin through the Internet like a lot of people did because he created quite a few pages about Saints. He was besotted with the club. I never met him in person but I spoke to him over the phone and he was a lovely man.”
