Accrington Stanley's Billy Kee Almost Quit Football Last Season Because Of Battle With Depression
18 months ago, Billy Kee seriously considered taking his own life because of depression and anxiety.
The 27-year-old admitted that at one point in his life, he considered driving his car into a wall but with the help of the club, while constantly learning about the illness, he has improved in recent months.
Kee is now celebrating winning promotion with the Football League side after he scored twice in last night's 2-0 win over fellow League Two side Yeovil.
Billy Kee took time off earlier in the season as he was struggling with clinical depression and now he's just won League 2 player of the year. Amazing.- Max (@merxpls) April 17, 2018
