The Darlaston 1874 FC community is shocked at the untimely passing away of Leon Taylor, a striker. He was just 36 years old. He will be sadly missed.
On Saturday 27 November 2021 I laid flowers at a memorial for him at the Paycare Ground alongside other tributes. Leon was an important member of the team. He had also played for other local teams, Sporting Khalsa, AFC Wulfrunians, Brocton, Wednesfield, Bilston Town, Bloxwich United, Tividale and Walsall Wood.
Leon lived in Walsall and leaves behind his partner Kelly and two children, Tia-Nicole and Theo. A fundraising page has been set up to support his family.
May he rest in peace.
