POPULAR former Sheffield official Roy Wilson has died following a long illness.

Wilson, grandfather of Tigers asset Ben, stood down from his Owlerton duties three years ago.

Sheffield owner Neil Machin said: “Roy was the face and the heart of our training schools, he has been missed since his illness forced him to retire and will now be missed forever.

“He was responsible for helping guys like Simon Stead, Davis Howe and Robbie Kessler in the early stages of their career and our thoughts are with his family at this very difficult time.”
