Former Swansea and Wales defender Mark Davies has tragically passed away, aged just 49.

The ex-Swan, who retired from professional football several years ago, died last weekend after collapsing while playing for Llanelli Town in their Over-45s Cup Final against Penybont.

Although emergency services quickly arrived, despite their best efforts to revive the 49-year-old, the former right-back was later declared dead.
