Taken far too young.  4 seasons with the club.  I don't think I'll be alone in saying I was really disapointed at the time when he left, but we didn't have much choice.  It won't seem quite the same observing the minutes silence sitting at home rather than together in the ground, so I'd like to see something organised down the line.

Indeed. It was such a shame when he left for Barnsley...but him leaving very much kept the club afloat. There may have simply been no promotion season without him.

Horrible news. Great player and great person. Had the pleasure of going for a few drinks with him a couple of times and he loved his time at the club and the fans. A very very sad day, im gutted about this news. A good solid lower league Pro whos been taken far too soon. RIP Lee.

I've started a just giving page for the family of Lee from the Port Vale family.

Difficult times for us all so any donation welcome. Then I'm sure the powers that be from Vale or Rob on here can sort out some sort of tribute for Lee and present a cheque whatever we can raise.

Gutted at the news and it won't bring Lee back but let's see if we can get a grand for his family in memory of Vale supporters.

Awful news, had to check it was 'our Lee Collins'. heart goes out to family and friends - 32 - no words..

Lee to me was quality, a leader, very much in the mold of others like George Pilkington. I always felt he was "too good" for us tbh and deserved to play at a higher level. Gutted to see him leave. So sad this. RIP Lee

Always amazed me he didn't make it in The Championship. Would have been pleased to have seen him back in a Vale shirt, even at 32. A very talented defender.

Good point, I’m sure if we made a move for him he would have come back, no disrespect to Yeovil.
