Maddy Cusack: Police not treating Sheffield United midfielder’s death as suspicious
Midfielder Cusack – the first player to reach 100 appearances for the club’s women’s team last season – died last week aged 27.
Derbyshire Police said they were called to an address in Horsley just after 18:35 BST on Wednesday, where Cusack was pronounced dead at the scene.
They added a file will now be prepared for the coroner.
Members of her family joined United’s women’s captain Sophie Barker and former player Tony Currie to lay a wreath in the centre circle.
A minute’s silence was held before kick-off, with fans applauding in the eighth minute of the match to represent Cusack’s squad number.
Fans held up signs and flags with Cusack’s name on and the club flag at Bramall Lane flew at half-mast throughout the day.
