Jessica Ennis-Hill states her position relating to Sheffield United and Ched Evans

Statement from Jessica Ennis-Hill.

Jessica Ennis-Hill, Olympic Heptathlon Champion, has communicated to Sheffield United that she would want her name removed from the Bramall Lane stand, which was re-named after her Olympic success in 2012, should Ched Evans be offered a contract to play for the club.

“I believe being a role model to young people is a huge honour and those in positions of influence in communities should respect the role they play in young people’s lives and set a good example. If Evans was to be re-signed by the club it would completely contradict these beliefs”.

Jessica is not available for further comment or interviews.
