Sheffield United have announced that they plan to name a stand at Bramall Lane in honour of Sheffield’s very own Olympic heptathlon gold medalist, Jessica Ennis.
The stand in question is the Bramall Lane Stand, which the club will rechristen ‘The Jessica Ennis Stand’ (“two tickets in the Lower Ennis please”) before this Saturday’s League One game against Bournemouth.
