Tribute to Sheila


Senior Blades announced recently the passing of our Secretary Sheila Herring. Today we would like to pay a tribute to a well liked and respected colleague and also a good friend.

Sheila joined the Committee of Senior Blades in 2009 and took on the role of Secretary in 2016. Over the following years the role expanded and Sheila took it in her stride and and made the job her own.

She worked in a quiet, resolute way and got the job done and would always be ready to give her opinions when asked.

Although a southern girl, Sheila and her husband David, a Manchester lad and City supporter, quickly became very keen Blades supporters and brought up their two sons, Mark and David to be the same.

Sheila will be tremendously missed by her committee colleagues, members and all at SUFC who knew her.
