Ewe Rams in Tribute to Club Partner

Derby County Ladies have paid tribute to a much loved Club Partner who suddenly passed away on Boxing Day last year, with a framed shirt presented to his wife.

Steve Haynes was a Sales Director at TL Darby for over 35 years and was a passionate fan of Derby County and  a keen driver in the motor dealers  partnership with the Ewe Rams, culminating in TL Darby adorning the front of the Derby County Ladies away kit for the 2017/18 season.

Handing over the framed away team shirt to Steve’s wife Denise, was Ewe Rams Commercial Director Neil Jackson who paid tribute to his friend.

Jackson said “It was a terrible shock to hear of Steve’s passing over the Christmas break, I’d worked with him for many years and I was proud to call him both a colleague and a friend.

“He was a passionate Derby County fan and was really keen for the company to get involved with the Ladies team to help grow the game and loved the idea of becoming a shirt sponsor.

“That was Steve all over, always looking to help out in whatever he did. Most of all though he was a proud family man and through his wife Denise and his two children Alex and Kristin, he will be always remembered.

“We’ll miss him terribly and the Ewe Rams have lost a great advocate for the women’s game too, so this framed shirt was the least we could do.”
