Cause of death of Sheffield’s Maddy Cusack yet to be determined by the Police

An inquest has commenced and subsequently been adjourned regarding the passing of Sheffield United Women’s footballer Maddy Cusack.

The Blades officially announced Cusack’s death on September 21 at the age of 27. Maddy Cusack passed away at her residence on Lady Lea Road, Horsley. The Derbyshire Police have confirmed that her death is not considered suspicious.

The inquest into her demise has been initiated and temporarily postponed, as the exact cause of death remains undetermined.

“We are awaiting a police file and the medical cause of death,” assistant coroner Louise Pinder said.

“Therefore, I am adjourning the inquest for six weeks for further review.”

The inquest revealed that Cusack’s father, David, officially identified her following her demise.

Maddy Cusack had the distinction of being Sheffield United’s most enduring player, being the first female to achieve 100 appearances for the Blades, and she also held a position as a marketing executive with the club.

The football community paid their respects to Maddy Cusack following her tragic passing. Sheffield United honored her with a minute’s silence and their players donned her No. 8 jersey in a Premier League match against Newcastle. A wreath was placed in the center circle by family members. And in the eighth minute, supporters applauded in acknowledgment of her squad number.

England’s Lionesses also observed a minute’s silence before their Nations League clash against Scotland at the Stadium of Light, with players wearing black armbands.
