Belles remember Naomi
 Women's Football News 20 May 2011
Belles remember Naomi - 20 May 2011 - Women's Football NewsThere was an exemplary minute's silence for Naomi Smith at last Thursday's FA WSL fixture between Doncaster Rovers Belles and Everton.
Naomi was a key player in the Sheffield United Community Junior sides who dominated the Sheffield & Hallam County Girls League in their age groups at Under-12 through to Under-15.
She was suddenly diagnosed with leukaemia on 26th January after a visit to her Doctor and a blood test that day. It was discovered that she had Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) and unfortunately she died just under a fortnight ago.
Both clubs along with England manager Hope Powell provided the flowers which were given to Naomi's mother at the funeral, along with a shirt signed by all the players Naomi had played with at Sheffield United.
The photo held by Tony Santoro, who was very appreciative of the support shown by the clubs and the Football Association, shows Naomi smiling after United Under-15s won the Sheffield & Hallam County Girls League Cup in 2010.
More details on AML can be found on Naomi Smith Bone Marrow recruitment appeal on facebook.
