SHEFFIELD RUGBY UNION FOOTBALL CLUB LIMITED
It is with great sadness and shock that the club has to announce the sudden passing of Allen Broomhead.
Allen joined us from Northern in the 1977/78 season going on to make 263 appearances between then and 1990/91. 253 of these appearances were at prop a club record only recently overhauled by Tommy Marples. He and his son Chris hold the club record for father and son appearances by some margin.
After his playing career finished Allen took to coaching, something he was very active in and would have continued next season. His huge contribution to the Colts sections of many ages has influenced many younger person to continue playing the game at whatever level.
A club man of over 42 years service his presence and contributions will be hugely missed.
Our condolences go to all his family and friends. Details of the funeral will be released shortly.
