Laurie Bramall inducted into the hall of fame

16 October 2019

Laurie Bramall has become the 21st Rovers players to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Rovers supporter Collin Whitehead accepted the award on Laurie’s behalf.

The forward joined Rovers in 1907 after spells for Sheffield University, Sheffield FC and Sheffield Wednesday reserves.

He was just 21 when he joined Rovers but was appointed captain. He was an effective leader and a prominent goal scorer bagging 14 in 20 in the 1910-1911 season.

In 1911, Bramall left for Canada with his brother as the pair took over a farm. He didn’t return two years later for a few months and played a handful of games.

He is perhaps best known for always playing with a handkerchief tucked in his sleeve and for giving all of his teammates a rabbit for Christmas.
