Martyn Harrison - 1955-2015

9 December 2015

It is with sadness that Sheffield United Football Club report the passing of Official Club Photographer, Martyn Harrison.

Martyn, 60, passed away at home on Wednesday morning after a year-long battle with cancer.

Martyn was a popular face at S2, amongst directors, management, players, staff and many supporters.

A lifelong Blade, Martyn, known to many as 'Baldy', was born in Retford and latterly lived in Doncaster, via Rotherham. He began his professional association with the Club in the mid 1980s and has provided photographic coverage on thousands of Blades matches, the last of which was Chris Morgan's testimonial fixture in July before illness prevented him taking his familiar place on the Bramall Lane touchline.

On behalf of all the United family, sincere condolences to Martyn's family and friends.

Rest in peace, Martyn.
