Yvonne McLeod: BRSC Statement

Jun 7, 2018 | News

The Committee was saddened to learn recently of the passing of Yvonne McCleod, the sister of our Vice-Chairman, Phil Draper.

Yvonne was a member of the Pirates Committee (Rovers’ then youth supporters group founded by Gordon Bennett) back in the 1960’s and 70’s before she ‘defected’ to become a passionate fan of Liverpool F.C. whom she followed all over the world, latterly with her late husband ‘Mack’. Yvonne became a prominent member of the Bristol Branch of the Liverpool Supporters Club and was heavily involved in various campaigns related to the Merseyside club. Yvonne’s funeral takes place at Westerleigh Crematorium on Wednesday, June 27th at 1.15pm.

Our sympathies go to Phil and the rest of Yvonne’s family and friends.
