Former Professional footballer and youth team coach Kevin Austin has sadly died at the age of 45 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.
Austin was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year and passed away on Friday night.
The Scunthorpe United youth coach, who played as a central defender or at left-back all his career, played for several hugh profile clubs including Leyton Orient, Barnsley, Lincoln City and Swansea City to name a few.
We at The Bootiful Game pass on our condolences to his family at this sad time.
Incredibly sad to hear the news this morning of Kevin Austin passing away. I remember playing against him many times down the years & always knowing it would be a big challenge. My deepest sympathies go out to his family & friends.
RIP Kev #Footballfamily
