Club Statement: Norman Rimmington.

29 December 2016

Barnsley Football Club is truly devastated today to announce that Norman Rimmington has passed away at the age of 93.

‘Rimmo’ was a true Club legend and a man who represented the Club with the upmost pride and dedication throughout his life. Born in Staincross, Barnsley, Norman was a fearless Goalkeeper and first signed professional terms with the Club in 1945. He then went on to work for the Club in various other roles throughout his life.

Barnsley Football Club ran through Norman’s veins and he embodied everything good about our town and our people. Through his commitment and service to the Club over the decades Norman became affectionately known to the fans as ‘Mr Barnsley’ - a fitting tribute to a man who devoted his life to the Club.

Norman will be deeply missed by everyone here at Barnsley Football Club and we would like to send our sincere condolences to his family at this sad time.

We will keep supporters informed of funeral arrangements, as and when this information becomes available.

Rest in peace, Rimmo.
