Sharon Geeson

It is our sad news to report that Sharon Geeson passed away on Sunday 12 October.

Sharon had many roles in the hockey world. She was an umpire at the top level of the game and gained her FIH badge in 1994 having umpired at international tournaments in Cork in 1992 and Cardiff in 1993.

She was the Midlands Disciplinary Administrator from 2008 and also chair of selectors of the England Over 45s Womens Masters squad.

Sharon was a well known figure on the Midlands hockey circuit and was a member of Crimson Ramblers LHC that latterly became part of Beeston.

As can be seen from her various roles within the sport, Sharon was a great supporter of hockey and this support helped others enjoy the game.  Our thoughts are with her friends and family at this time.

Her funeral will be held on 3 November at Mansfield & District Crematorium. For details, a fuller obituary and condolences please use this link.
