Wilfred Lübs - Our Tribute


Wilfried Lübs

The Broomfield Football Club family are very sad to hear of the recent passing of Wilfried Lübs in Germany. Wilfried was the architect of our annual football exchange with SV Sparta Werlte, which commenced in 1980.  In 1979 Wilfried placed an advert in an Essex newspaper looking for a local football team to partner with on an annual exchange programme - Broomfield Football Club accepted. Wilfried’s pioneering energy in the early days of the exchange has ensured it has endured. Many at Broomfield Football Club have participated in the exchange, including generations of families in both countries, over the last 40 plus years and many many lifelong friendships created as a consequence of Wilfried’s vision. With his continued presence it became about more than just football.  He will be sorely missed in Germany and in Broomfield. Our thoughts are with his wife Dorle, daughter Sonja and son Ingo and the wider family at this time.


Der gesamt Broomfield Football Club trauert über den Tod von Wilfried Lübs. Wilfried war der 'Architekt’ des alljährlichen Fußballaustauschs zwischen dem Broomfield Football Club und dem SV Sparta Werlte, der 1980 ins Leben gerufen wurde.  

1979 ließ Wilfried eine Anzeige in einer Zeitung in Essex veröffentlichen: Er wollte eine örtliche Fußballmannschaft für einen jährlichen Austausch finden. Der Broomfield Football Club meldete sich, und unser Austausch war geboren. Bis heute bestehr er — maßgeblich getragen von Wilfrieds Pioniergeist in den Anfangstagen. Viele Mitglieder des Broomfield Football Club haben seit mehr als 40 Jahren an dem Austausch teilgenommen. Generationen von Familien aus beiden Ländern sind zusammengekommen, und Wilfrieds Vision hat viele lebenslange Freundschaften entstehen lassen. Durch seine ständige Präsenz hat Wilfried den Austausch geprägt, in dem es um Fußball ging und geht, aber noch um viel mehr. 

Wilfried wird in Deutschland und in Broomfield schmerzlich vermisst werden. Unsere Gedanken sind in dieser Zeit bei seiner Frau Dorothea, seiner Tochter Sonja und seinem Sohn Ingo sowie der gesamten Familie.


“Sport has the power to change the world ... it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down barriers.” Nelson Mandela
