Charlie Slocombe RIP

Charlie Slocombe

A minute’s applause to be held in memory of Charlie before Saturday’s (27th July) pre-season Friendly against Kingstonian

Very sad news has now been received concerning the sudden passing of former Angels defender Charlie Slocombe aged just 26.  Taken from us far too young, Charlie was a popular player at the club who was involved in both the Reserve and 1st team sides. He made of a total of 32 appearances for the 1st team and always showed a willingness to step up and help his team mates when required. It is known that he had a special affection for Longmead and all connected with the Angels 

Charlie collapsed yesterday evening in a six a side game playing the sport he loved. He was quickly transferred to Kings College Hospital and put on a life support machine but sadly passed away this afternoon (23rd July).

Our thoughts are with Charlie’s family and friends as they try to come to terms with this devastating news.

Funeral arrangements will be announced on this website when confirmed.
