Leeds Rhinos and Leeds Rhinos Foundation were saddened to hear of the passing of their former employee Glenn Horsman following his illness with Motor Neurone Disease.
Glenn worked for Leeds Rhinos Foundation, delivering their education projects at the Learning Centre at Headingley Stadium. He was a lifelong fan of the club and a season ticket holder. His father, Eric Horsman, who is now 87 years-old, played 36 times for Leeds and was a travelling reserve for the 1961 Championship winning team.
Earlier this year Glenn attended the Leeds game against Bradford, along with The MND Association who he had fundraised for, and got the chance to meet up with Rob Burrow at the end of the game.
Dan Busfield, head of partnerships for Leeds Rhinos Foundation said: “Glenn was influential in developing our education offer at Leeds Rhinos Foundation as a manager at TryZone our Learning Centre.
“Glenn set the platform from which we have been able to continue to grow over the years and he had a positive impact on the lives of many young people in our city.
“On a personal note, I had the pleasure of meeting Glenn and his family on several occasions due to our wider link with the MND Association and fundraising initiatives in which Glenn was an active member. On behalf of the club and Leeds Rhinos Foundation, I would like to pass on our condolences to all the family and we hope they will find some comfort in the legacy Glenn has left.”
