Tributes poured in for Sammy Conn, former captain and manager of Cowdenbeath FC, who sadly died on Sunday at the age of 52.
Social media tributes and memories from former colleagues and fans exemplified what a popular player and manager he was.
Sammy had 65 appearances and notched up seven goals for the Fife Club between 1994 and 1997.
He also played for Falkirk, Albion Rovers, Clydebank and Airdrie.
Famed for taking free- kicks, he memorably scored both goals during a 2-0 Cowdenbeath victory over Ross County.
Sammy was hired by Cowdenbeath as an old head to stabilise a youthful team. He quickly became an effective and popular player, and received a sportsman’s dinner tribute after only a couple of years with Cowdenbeath.
He won the player of the year award in 1995/96. A statement from Cowdenbeath Football Club said he will be sadly missed.
He had been afflicted with motor neurone disease for a number of years before his death.
