A message from club president Richard Kemp:

"I attended the funeral of ex Long Melford FC star Sammy Price at Ipswich on Monday, on behalf of the club.

As captain at LMFC, Sammy took the Suffolk Senior Cup at Portman Road for Melford three times on the bounce in the 1950s.

It emerged at the funeral that Sammy Price was one of ten children born in Cradley Heath, and came to the Bury St Edmunds area as a National Serviceman.

He married a local girl and before joining Melford played Junior Football in Bury St Edmunds.He impressed the mighty (then) Leeds Utd and was offered a trial but due to personal circumstances did not turn up!

It is quite clear that Sammy loved his time at LMFC and hence the wish for his ashes to be scattered on the Stoneylands pitch.
