A GROUP of Sheffield United fans will be flying the flag for club and country in Donetsk. Retired police officer Kevin Greathead, aged 54, of Meadowhead, will be with five other England supporters.
Kevin, who now works as a civil investigator for South Yorkshire Police, said: “I don’t think a lot of people know about the Sheffield connection, both here and out there. I was a police officer for 38 years and worked at Moss Way station, which is next to Donetsk Way.
“We’re out there for a week so we are going to have a wander around and see if there is anything which has the Sheffield link. We’ll have our flag with us to show people. You never know, there might be a Blades Avenue.”
Also carrying an England flag with Sheffield United emblazoned across will be fellow Sheffield United season ticket holders Russell Hunt, aged 42, and Stephen Titterton, aged 52.
