Previous Oxford Utd winger Joey Beauchamp bites the dust at the age of 50; Beauchamp endorsed with the home-town club in 1987 and was offered to Premier League side West Ham in 1994 for a then club-record charge of £1.2m; Beauchamp got back to Oxford in 1995 showing up and scoring 80 goals.
Oxford United have honoured their previous winger Joey Beauchamp, who has passed on at 50 years old.
Beauchamp endorsed his old neighbourhood club as a YTS learner in 1987 and was offered to Premier League side West Ham in 1994 for a then club-record expense of £1.2m.
Be that as it may, the winger didn’t play a cutthroat counterpart for the Hammers, as he changed to Swindon only two or after three months to be nearer to his loved ones.
Beauchamp got back to Oxford in November 1995 and wound up showing up and scoring 80 objectives for United – leaving him tenth and fifth separately in the club’s entire records – before a toe injury finished his vocation in 2002.
“The thoughts of everyone at Oxford United are with the family and friends of Joey Beauchamp, who has passed away aged 50,” a club statement read.
“The club will pay fitting tribute to one of its greatest ever players in due course, but for now, we ask fans to allow Joey’s family some privacy at this sad time.”
Swindon mentioned in a statement: “We are heartbroken to learn of the death of former Town player, Joey Beauchamp.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Joey’s family and friends at this sad time.”
The thoughts of everyone at West Ham United are with the family and friends of Joey Beauchamp.
