The Coventry Blaze are saddened to hear of the passing away of Elaine Barlow. 

Elaine, 66, fought a brief but strong battle against cancer before sadly leaving us on 24th July 2021.

Elaine loved sport, and was a huge part of the Blaze, particularly in the first-decade of the club being in Coventry. 

She travelled far and wide to support us, volunteered on match nights and organised coach travel for the many friends that she made through the sport.  

She was extremely hard-working and dedicated and we can't give enough thanks to her, and the rest of the family, who helped us grow to what we are today. 

Our thoughts and condolences are with husband Malcolm, son Andrew and the rest of her family and friends. 

RIP Elaine, your legacy will live on forever.
