Wakefield Trinity are devastated to learn of the passing of Natalie Harrowell, a key member of the club’s Community Foundation team, where she was Women & Girls Development Officer.
Natalie, 29, was a recent addition at the club but was devoted to the role of developing the sport of Rugby League for Women and Girls across the district.
She was also one of the longest-serving players at Featherstone Rovers Ladies Women’s Super League team and a leader both on and off the field, winning the club’s Woman of Steel award in 2019.
She represented England with huge pride, and was determined to add to her three international caps in the future.
Our thoughts and condolences are with Natalie’s young daughter Olivia and the rest of her family at this sad time.
Head of Foundation, Craig Shepherd, said,
“We are shocked and saddened by the loss of Nat. In the short time she had been a part of our team she had befriended many people and had become a huge part of our future. We can’t stress enough that she was an outstanding member of the team and person. She will be missed.”
