RUFC - Howard given Freedom of the Town

Rotherham United fan and World Cup Referee, Howard Webb has been made an Honorary Freedom of Rotherham, which is the highest honour the borough can give, in recognition of his contributions both to sport and to charity.

Howard told The Yorkshire Post that he is delighted with the honour saying, 'It`s fantastic for a proud Rotherham lad like myself who was born and bred in the town and who is still living here with no thoughts of leaving.

'It`s quite a select few people who have been given the freedom of the borough. It`s nice to be recognised by your own people in that way. I`m proud of where I come from, for sure. I`m proud to carry the flag of Rotherham wherever I go around the world and it`s nice that recognition has been given.`

As a Freeman, Howard will receive an illuminated address bearing the Rotherham Coat of Arms, and will sign the Roll of Honorary Freemen in front of civic guests

All at Vital Rotherham want to send their Congratulations to Howard
