Following the postponement of Tuesday night’s game with Lincoln City, Rotherham United will now pay tribute to recently passed League Cup finalist Lol Morgan and former player Glyn Jones with a minute’s applause ahead of Saturday’s hosting of Cheltenham Town at AESSEAL New York Stadium.
As a result of the Imps clash not taking place as scheduled, the meeting with the Robins is the first opportunity to honour the lives of both Lol and Glyn, whilst we are sure many supporters will also use the tribute to remember our long-time club sponsor and friend Eric Twigg, who also passed away recently.
The match referee will assemble the two sides around the centre circle just before kick off on Saturday afternoon, with fans of both clubs encouraged to join us in a period of applause to celebrate the lives and achievements of Lol and Glyn with Rotherham United.
As a further mark of respect, Paul Warne’s first team will also wear black armbands in homage to Lol and Glyn, with our colleagues from Cheltenham Town kindly offering to do the same as a show of support to our tribute.
Copies of our official matchday programme The New York Way will also feature tributes for the aforementioned individuals.
