We are saddened to learn the news of the passing of former player Sammy Winston, aged 44.
Sammy signed from Ryman Premier Division side Kingstonian in 2001, and once he got into his stride, formed a formidable partnership with Tony Boot in the Rebels’ attack. Among his 25 goals for the club were some spectacular strikes, and his run of scoring at the start of the 2002/3 season was memorable, as he scored in the opening four games of the season and six of the opening seven.
He joined Leyton Orient from Norwich City, where he had been a regular in the youth and reserve sides, in 1996 and moved into non-league football with Yeovil Town two years later. He went on to have spells at several non-league clubs including Sutton United, Kingstonian, Boreham Wood and Leyton, before he finally hung up his boots after a spell at Enfield Town in 2009, later working with the Fire Brigade.
Everyone at the club sends their deepest condolences to Sammy’s family and friends at this sad time.
