SANTIAGO COLTS have paid tribute to the late Ste O’Connell who was a long-serving supporter of the junior football club.
Ste – whose daughter, Chelsea, and niece, Louise, play for the club – was a big supporter of the club long before the girls played for them.
In the last two seasons, he travelled from Bicester so that his daughter could play football but he sadly passed away at the end of February.
Santiago Colts’ William Edge said: “He was one of the good ones who would always help the club out.
“He was also the cheeky chappy who no matter what, would always leave me smiling from some comment he made.”
