HEYBRIDGE Swifts Football Club would like to offer its deepest and heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Adam Passfield at this tragic time.

Adam was an extremely popular lad and talented footballer; however more importantly he was a much loved son, brother and friend, and we share the loss and pain of those closest to him.

The club would like to offer it's thanks to our numerous friends in non-league football for their kind words and messages of support.

In a four-year career with the club, which had been punctuated with Injury, Adam had the potential to be playing at a higher level of football, however his progression was hampered by a number of setbacks, and he was working hard to regain full fitness following a broken foot sustained during pre-season.

He was close to a return to first team football, and we all hoped he would add to the 37 appearances that he had made for the club.

First team manager Wayne Bond issued the following tribute: “Adam was a quiet player in and around the dressing room but on the pitch he was what I used to call my "Paul Scholes.

“He would quietly go about his job then suddenly, the ball would be in the net! He could spray a 30-yard pass to completely open up an opposition's defence in a second. He had quick feet and great vision.

“He will be sadly missed by my-self and all the players that had the honour to call him a team-mate. We will miss you Passa.”
