Patrick Suffo, Sheffield Unitedīs Cameroonian international, has been placed on the transfer list by the club following his sending-off for violent conduct in the Nationwide League game against West Brom on 16 March. The match was abandoned when the Blades only had 6 players left on the pitch, following 3 red cards.
This news has come as a blow to staff and volunteers at FURD, as Patrick has been a great supporter of the project and attended several events, once spending four hours at a FURD 5-a-side tournament.
