RetroUnited.com are sad to learn of the news of the passing of Gail Stephenson.
Gail had been a member of the backroom staff at Manchester United for a number of years and was credited with a great deal of assistance to the young players breaking through in the mid 1990’s, due to her aptitude for the benefit of peripheral vision among other attributes.
She also worked with the Scottish hockey team and the Subaru world rally team.
Gail passed away after a short illness, the details of which are not yet known. Gail’s daughter Rebecca – a friend of ours – also tragically passed away late last year.
Our condolences and thoughts are with the Stephenson family.
Manchester United will wear black armbands in tomorrow’s friendly against San Jose Earthquakes.
