Club pay tribute to Former Club Secretary Shirley Pollock

Players and Staff of Rotherham United Ladies have paid tribute to former Club Secretary, Shirley Pollock who sadly died on Tuesday December 17th aged 84.

Shirley was a popular individual at Rotherham United Women, welcoming visitors through the gates at Roundwood Sports Complex for years.

Shirley’s long association with the club began when she took Amy Pollock, the now captain of the Ladies down to Roundwood as a young girl more than 20 years ago.

Valerie Hoyle, secretary of Rotherham United Women, said: “Shirley played a massive part in the club right up until her death. She used to travel the length and breadth of the country to attend meetings, and her contribution will never be forgotten.

“She was also a great friend, and we’ve had so many messages on social media from people saying how much she’ll be missed.

“She was always very feisty. If she thought something was worth sticking up for she would be the one to fight your corner, and she still had that fighting spirit right up to the end.”
