Hull rugby legend, Roger Millward MBE, has been honoured today through the renaming of Garrison Road officially changing to Roger Millward Way.
Early this month the plans were announced for the renaming of the A63, one of Hull’s main roads. Millward’s wife, Carol, and family were there to unveil the sign along with Hull City Councillor, Stephen Brady, and Kingston Rovers chairman, Neil Hudgell.
Roger joined Hull Kingston Rovers in 1966 and played almost 500 times for the club before becoming it’s coach in 1977-1991. Unfortunately Millward died at the age of 68 due to a long on-going illness.
At the unveiling KR Chairman, Neil Hudgell, said: “It is a real tribute to his success that he will have a key road in Hull named after him.”
A turn out of approximately 30 – 40 people turned out to see the unveiling of the new sign in the middle of the main road which family of the legend could not appreciate more.
Hudgell added: “I’m sure he would be delighted.”
