Dave Fields RIP


It is with great sadness I bring you the news that local referee and police officer Dave Fields passed away in a tragic accident whilst on duty on Christmas Day. Dave was responding to an emergency call when the police vehicle he was travelling in was involved in a Road Traffic Accident where the passenger of the other vehicle also sadly passed away later. The driver is seriously ill in hospital.


Dave was loved by all, he mentored and trained many referees at all levels. He was Vice-Chair of Sheffield Refereees Association and an avid supporter of initiatives to develop referees in the Junior League. Many will remember Dave fondly with a story or two to tell. We have lost a brilliant referee, mentor and friend.


Thoughts are with both families and wishes for a speedy recovery for the driver of the other vehicle involved.


Dave will be sorely missed by all, but remain in our hearts forever.


Sad Regards,


Steve Clayton


Vice Chair
