Maddy Cusack’s Cause of Death is unknown
Maddy Cusack’s cause of death remains unknown at this point. The Sheffield United’s longest-serving women’s player died on Wednesday, September 2023.
Cusack was described as a ‘valued colleague’ at Bramall Lane owing to her contributions in numerous areas of the club.
Another of Maddy’s former clubs, Birmingham City, responded to the sad news by saying those at St Andrew’s were ‘saddened’ by the news.
Yorkshire Live journalist Nathan Hemmingham said that Cusack “always had a smile on her face and [was] great company.”
In her four years with Sheffield United, she made more than 100 appearances for the club. Cusack was part of the team that finished eighth in the Women’s Championship last season.
The playmaker joined during the club’s first campaign in England’s second tier and rarely missed minutes in her four-and-a-half-year tenure.
Hemmingham praised Cusack as the first player to reach 100 appearances for United, with one fan saying: “She embodied the spirit of the club.”
Sheffield United confirmed tributes celebrating the player’s life ‘will continue privately’.
