Sadly, On Sunday it was announced that former ADO player and trainer passed away on Saturday. The 32 year old suffered a serious epileptic seizure that she did not recover from.
This is a loss that has shocked everyone that new her and her supporters. She was a fighter both on and off the pitch. Strong minded, fair and open to everyone. I had the pleasure to get to know her a little bit more than most of the other players as she was doing her foundation work with young female footballers.
She was part of the team that won the league and cup double in the 2011/2012 season. She had great times at the club and was welcomed back every time. Her commitment to the club and football in general was outstanding.
Off the pitch she was great fun, loud and party going. Everyone warmed to her. So the news of her sudden and untimely passing is hard to swallow. She will be missed by many.
My heartfelt love and best wishes go to her family and friends in this time of sadness. We’ll all miss you Sylvia.. R.I.P. XXXX
