Adam Stansfield has passed away on Tuesday August 10th. The 31-year old striker of English club Exeter City was diagnosed with bowel cancer in April this year.

 

Stansfield made a name for himself in the lower divisions. He was a valuable striker for Yeovil Town and Hereford United, and was a key contributor as Exeter City clinched back-to-back promotions, and moved up from the Conference to League One.

 

Last season Stansfield made 7 goals in 27 appearances for Exeter City before his cancer was diagnosed in April, following a series of tests for an abdominal complaint.

 

‘It's absolutely tragic, a total shock’, Gary Johnson, the coach who let Stansfield start his professional career at Yeovil Town, told BBC. ‘He's probably one of the hardest working footballers I've ever worked with.'

 

'He was very popular with the fans for the simple reason they could see that he always gave everything. They'll remember him for his heart, he was all-action and never gave up on anything.'
