Hall played college soccer in the United States before turning professional in England.

He represented Northampton Town, Chester, Oxford City and AFC Telford United – with a brief stint at MLS side Toronto in between.

Hall had ten caps for his country between 2011 and 2015 before becoming a popular figure with Ireland side Limerick between 2015 and 2018.

Northampton wrote in a statement from the club: “We are deeply saddened to learn of his passing.

“Our thoughts are with Freddy’s family and friends at this very sad time.”

Limerick added: “Freddy has served the club with distinction during his time here.

“The club extends its sincere condolences to Freddy’s family on his tragic death.”

Telford wrote: “Everyone at AFC Telford United is saddened to hear of the passing of our former goalkeeper Freddy Hall.

“Freddy joined the club in October 2014 and played in the Conference Premier under Liam Watson & Steve Kittrick during our season.

“All our thoughts are with Freddy’s family and friends.”

Toronto FC posted on social media: “Toronto FC mourns the loss of goalkeeper Freddy Hall. Everyone at the club sends our condolences to their family and loved ones.”

While the Canadian club’s goalkeeping coach Terry Dunfield added: “Heard burnt out. RIP Freddy 💔”

Football author Andrew Cunneen wrote of the popular stopper: “I’d have a hard time remembering a player that a whole town has grown accustomed to as quickly as Limerick has grown accustomed to Freddy Hall and that is because of who he was as a player and was human alike. Rest in peace, Fred.”

Craig Mahon, Hall’s former Chester teammate, tweeted: “Really sad to read this. He was a great boy. And part of the chester fc family. Thoughts of his family and friends.”
