“Sheffield United Soccer Membership is desperately unhappy to report the passing of one among our best captains, Eddie Colquhoun.

The membership will miss him vastly, and his loss leaves one other colossal gap in our household and, after all in his personal, and our love and ideas go to Fiona, Heather and all of them at this saddest of occasions.”
