Former Wrexham player Kieron Durkan found dead in car

Former Wrexham, Swansea City and Crewe Alexandra player Kieron Durkan is found dead in his car.

Former Wrexham player Kieron Durkan has died at the age of 44.

The retired winger, who also played for Swansea City and Crewe Alexandra's youth team, was sadly found dead in his car in the early hours of Wednesday.

Wrexham paid tribute to Durkan following the news of his passing.

"The club has been so saddened to hear of the untimely passing of former player Kieron Durkan, at just 44 years of age," read a statement from the Welsh side.

"After coming through the ranks, he patiently waited on his first-team chances, but always had a smile on his face and went onto make his mark in the club's history."

According to the Daily Mail, Durkan was spoken to by Cheshire Police when they were investigating disgraced football coach Barry Bennell - who was recently jailed for a string of child sex offences - in 1997.

Durkan is said to have denied being abused by Bennell.
