TRIBUTE | Gerry Gow 1952-2016

10 October 2016

The Millers pay tribute to former midfielder...

Rotherham United are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former midfielder Gerry Gow.

The popular Scot represented the Millers in the second tier of English football after joining the club in 1982, going on to make 61 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals.

The tough-tackling midfielder played a major role in the club’s run of nine successive victories, eight of which came in February 1982, as the Millers rose from the threat of relegation to promotion contenders.

It was at Bristol City where Gow made his name, notching up 375 appearances for the Robins in an 11-year career, which included promotion to the old First Division.  He joined Manchester City in 1980, where he played in the FA Cup final, before switching to the Millers and ending his career with Burnley. 

He was also recognised at Under 23’s level for his native Scotland.

His popularity with all his clubs was underlined in 2012 when more than 3,000 supporters attended a testimonial game between Bristol City and Manchester City.

Rotherham United would like to express our deepest condolences to Gerry’s family and friends at this difficult time.

Once a Miller, always a Miller.
