Derek Dooley Way

Last updated : 22 July 2008 By Jamie Furniss

Dooley who unfortunately died on the 5th of March this year has a special place in the hearts of many Sheffielder's. Cutler's Way in Sheffield which is one of many roads which link Bramall Lane and Hillsborough will be named after the legend.

Dooley made 61 appearances and scored 62 goals in his Sheffield Wednesday career. Unfortunately he was put through a tragic incident. His infected leg had to be amputated and his career as a footballer ended.

He then took the reins in S6 and went on to manage the Owls for two seasons. Dooley consequently then was appointed the Chairman of Sheffield United and remained Chairman until 2006 where the Blades achieved promotion to the Premiership.

Their have been many rumours of the Sheffield Parkway been named Derek Dooley Way and the roads from St.Mary's Gate to Penistone Road also being one of the candidates.

It is official today (Tuesday) that Cutler's Way is the destination to be chosen. Business adresses and contact deatils will have to be amended before installing road signs.
