Club Statement: Menzie Yere

The following statement is released by the Board of Directors of Sheffield Eagles RLFC

“Supporters may be aware about the situation facing Menzie Yere & his family with regards to claiming residency and staying in the UK.

"The situation is urgent and pressing for Menzie. He is part of the club and will always be welcome regardless of if he is playing next season or not. He has been a fantastic servant over the past 10 seasons and his record speaks for itself.”

“The club has assisted Menzie and his family over those years with sourcing housing, financial assistance, numerous visa applications & much, much more.

“We have gone above and beyond for him, especially over the past two years and we will continue to support him in everyway we can.

“The club has been in touch with various organisations from Menzie’s Church, Local MP, Council and others for potential assistance which is unfortunately not forthcoming so it’s great that supporters are getting behind him and his bid to stay in the UK.”
