The first player to score a competitive goal at the new Wembley Stadium, Mitchell Cole, has died, the Football League has said.

Cole, who was 27, had been forced to retire as a professional player in February last year owing to a heart attack.

Writing on their official twitter feed, the League said: "We are sad to hear former Southend, Stevenage and Oxford player Mitchell Cole has passed away. Our thoughts are with his family and friends."
