‘landers it’s with a real heavy heart that I deliver this news, but I have it on very good authority that Col Sylvia has passed away in a car accident over the weekend. Please keep his family in your prayers. 

 

It has not hit the media yet, and if the mods wanna pull the thread, then I understand. 

 

Col was a great contributor to our club through some dark days and we should remember him this way.

 

rip Col

Seriously horrible news.

I was hoping Col would have a chance to put his life back together as it was seeming to spiral out of control.

A bloke dieing that young is a tragedy if this is true. And if so, his parents need all the understanding in the world.

I can now confirm that it is a sad truth. I am sure details will surface soon, but I think we should just be respectful and keep the family and Col in our prayers tonight.

Before any speculation starts, it was a motor vehicle accident.

Grew up watching him as my favourite player, heart breaking watching him spiral out of control like this and now this huge rest in peace to him but a lot of life lessons learnt from him. still wear the number 12 with pride in all my sports teams as a result.

Apparently true. And there will be a serious investigation is my mail. 

As there is with all traffic accidents where there’s a fatality. 

RIP Col, way too young.

Is there a link to this as I can’t find anything. Has it happened like in the last hour or so. This is [censored] if that’s the case

I can't find any corroborating evidence of this story. 

Tony Sheehan posted it on Twitter but all other posts about it seem to be based on that. 

No news organisations have reported about it yet. 

Not saying it isn't true but there is no other sources at this time. 

Here is the Twitter post.

Tragic news. Was my favourite player whilst at the Dees. Played a couple of great games (30+ possessions and 4 goals against the Hawks comes to mind).

He had a troubled second half of his life. May you rest in peace Col.
