North East Corner For Speed
The North East corner here at Elland Road on their feet and singing for Gary Speed. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Millwall at Elland Road on the 3rd December, 2011.

On the 27th November, 2011 it was reported that Gary Speed the Welsh International and Leeds United legend had died. Found by his wife Louise at 7.00am the same morning. She telephoned the police and ambulance service who confirmed him as being dead. His death was announced to the Football Association of Wales a few hours later.
Initial reporting of the tragedy said that Gary Speed had hanged himself. The official inquest that was taken in late January recorded a narrative verdict giving the cause of death as hanging but that: "the evidence does not sufficiently determine whether this was intentional or accidental".

The tragic news soon spread to the thousands of Leeds United fans throughout the world who immediately took to the message boards and social network sites. It was decided amongst the supporters that a tribute to the United legend should be made at the following game away at Nottingham Forest. Gary Speed wore the Number Eleven shirt for Leeds. It was arranged by the fans that on the eleventh minute of the game the United fans would sing his name for eleven minutes.
A further tribute for Gary Speed was also arranged for the next home game against Millwall. Members of the Leeds Utd Forum WACCOE got together and arranged for a banner to be made. The banner 30ft x 8ft would show the Leeds United badge that was used during Speeds era and also Speeds face with the words "GO ON GARY SPEED GET ONE YOURSELF SON". The words a reference to the television commentary that came just before his goal in a 4-0 win over Sheffield United. A win that helped Leeds win the League and gain promotion in 1989-90.

Gary Speed started his time with Leeds United at an early age in 1987, joining The Whites straight from school. It was manager Howard Wilkinson who first noticed his abilities, at the time Speed was playing in the Left Back position. It was under Wilkinson's managership where Speed made his First Team debut at the age of 19. A versatile player Speed played in nine out of the ten outfield positions but it was always on the left where Speed would shine. Gary Speed soon became a regular in Wilkinson's first eleven making 12 appearances and scoring 3 goals in United's push for promotion in 1989-90. The player went on and played an instrumental role in United's Championship win of 1991-92. Notably Speed was part of that famous United Midfield that also included Gordon Strachan, Gary McAllister and David Batty a midfield that Leeds legend Eddie Gray called the greatest Midfield lineup of the modern era. Gary Speed stayed with Leeds up until 1996 before he moved to Everton the club he supported as a boy. He made 312 appearances for Leeds and scored 57 goals.

Leeds United 1987-88 No.0147
High hopes for the season of 1987-88 for Leeds United after the achievements of Bremner's side the previous season which saw United reach the Semi Final of the FA Cup and the Play Off Final of the Second Division. The bookies had The Whites down as firm favourites for the title and confidence was high among the support. A bad start to the season which saw Leeds win only twice in their first nine games soon brought the camp at Elland Road back down to earth and by mid season after Leeds had only won six of the opening 20 League games everyone concerned was beginning to fear the worst. In the Domestic Cups and United failed to venture through the early stages. The Football League Cup saw Leeds reach the second stage only to be beaten by Oldham Athletic 4-2 in the replay at Boundary Park, the first game at Elland Road ended in a 2-2 draw. In the FA Cup and United failed to get past the 3rd Round after being beat 2-1 at Elland Road by Aston Villa and in the Simod Cup United lost out to Millwall at the Den 2-0. Following the Simod Cup loss Leeds put together a five match winning run in the League which brought the pre-season belief back to some but unfortunately it wasn't to be as up and down form plagued the rest of the season and any hope of that promotion had gone. United eventually finished the season in a disappointing 7th position, out of the automatic promotion position's and six points behind a Play Off position. One of the highlights of the season did see the emergence of the Leeds born youngster David Batty coming through the ranks, where he made seven League appearances for The Whites and scored a rare goal, a beauty too coming in a 2-1 win against Manchester City at Maine Road.

Leeds United 1999-00 No.0176
The season 1999-00 was the first full season in charge for manager David O'Leary and for the new campaign the Irishman made numerous signings. Danny Mills came from Charlton for 4.37M million, Eirik Bakke penned for 1M coming from Norwegian outfit Sogndal and Michael Bridges came from Sunderland for 4.5M which underlined the talent O'Leary was bringing to the club. Not much progress in the Football League Cup saw United knocked out in the 4th Round by Leicester City at Filbert Street after a penalty shoot out. Leeds went a round further in the FA Cup making the 5th Round only to be knocked out by Aston Villa 3-2 at Villa Park with Ian Harte and Eirik Bakke netting for Leeds. In the UEFA Cup and Leeds United made it all the way to the Semi Final where they met Turkish side Galatasary, Leeds lost the game over two legs, The Whites went down 2-0 in Istanbul and drew the game at Elland Road 2-2 with both the Leeds goals coming from Eirik Bakke. In the League and Leeds finished in their highest spot since they won the League in 1991-92 under Howard Wilkinson. O'Leary's young team finished in third spot and with it a place in the Champion's League. United won 28 games and scored 58 goals in the process.

This season however will always be remembered for the wrong reasons. O'Leary's achievements with his young side will always be in the shadow of two incidents that are now unfortunately cemented in the history of Leeds United. The first involved the two United players Lee Bowyer and Jonathan Woodgate. While out drinking at the Majestyk night club in Leeds January, 2000 they got themselves involved in an incident which saw a man suffer injuries that resulted in an eight day stay in hospital. What made this matter worse and prompted the papers to have a field day was the man receiving the treatment was Asian. Bowyer and Woodgate were charged with causing grievous bodily harm in an allegedly racially motivated attack. The case lasted for nearly two years and from the outset the judge made it very clear that the incident was not racially motivated. This did not stop the newspapers at large heaving an all out assault on Leeds United and it didn't stop opposing fans from chanting obscene, expletives at every following game without any recourse from the authorities. It could however have stopped Leeds United from having an even more memorable time in the League. Playing under such appalling and ludicrous conditions, a result of the national newspapers assaults, must have had a significant affect on the team.

The other regrettable and devastating incident involved two Leeds United supporters. Leeds United faced the Turkish side Galatasary in the Semi Final of the UEFA Cup. The night before the game on the 5th April, 2000 two Leeds United fans Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight were murdered by a group of Galatasary supporters. Stabbed to death because allegedly they had made insults towards sections of the Istanbul public. This allegation didn't have one witness who could put Kevin or Chris at the scene of any incident. It goes without saying that if the absurd and incompetent officials within UEFA had have cancelled the following days game Leeds might have done better on the park. The game went ahead in an extremely hostile environment with little care from the Turkish police. Hateful chanting went on over the Leeds team who lost the game 2-0. As if that wasn't enough the referee was distinctly biased in the Turkish sides favour. We'll never know how badly this affected Leeds United, it was heartbreaking for everybody involved with the club. Peter Ridsdale the Leeds chairman throughout the duration of this hard time was amazing, bringing many favourable and respectful comments from people outside of the club. The baleful deeds of the Galatasary supporting scum that night will never be absolved by Leeds fans and the memory of Chris and Kevin will always be in our hearts.

Leeds United 1992-93 No.0159
Before the start of the 1992-93 campaign Leeds took on Liverpool in the Charity Shield for the second time in their history. This time round it would be victory for the men in white, as United won the shield 4-3, with Eric Cantona bagging a hat trick for Leeds and Tony Dorigo scoring the other. Leeds had an early exit in the FA Cup with Arsenal winning a replay in the 4th Round at Elland Road after extra time and Leeds also went out early in the Football League Cup after they lost 2-1 away at Watford in the 3rd Round. In the League and Leeds just couldn't find their feet. With somewhat Jekyll and Hyde like performances, losing 4-1 away to Middlesborough in late August followed three days later with a 5-0 win at home against Tottenham Hotspur, saw them finish in a lowly 17th spot. Starting games as champions rather than underdogs didn't suit the United attitude and with the rest of the Division having a point to prove Leeds didn't have the answer. Leeds amazingly went all season without an away win. In the European Cup and Leeds disappointingly exited early in a two legged affair against Scottish Champions Rangers in Round 2. The previous round however saw one of the most memorable games ever at Elland Road. The German Champions Stuttgart brought a 3-0 advantage to Elland Road in the First Round, nobody gave Leeds a hope and they were underdogs once again. In the game at Elland Road and Leeds were unstoppable with a single-minded game plan of attack winning the game 4-1. With goals from Speed, Cantona, Chapman and Gary McAllister netting from the penalty spot. Stuttgart should have gone through on the away goal rule but amazingly UEFA ordered the game to be replayed because Stuttgart had fielded too many foreign players. At the neutral Nou Camp and Leeds won the replay 2-1 with goals from Strachan and Shutt.

Speedo Honoured
United fans surround the Billy Bremner statue here to remember and respect the memory of Gary Speed.

A Warm Up At The Moo Camp
The United squad here warming up on the Stadium:MK pitch before the League One game with Milton Keynes Dons on the 26th September, 2009.

Unbeaten in the league United were playing a MK Dons side who were also flying high in the League One table, the Buckinghamshire outfit had only suffered one defeat all season before the game with Grayson's men, the same fixture last season saw the end of Gary McAllister as manager of Leeds as United went down 3-1 which topped a dismal run for the Whites and United were out for revenge. Grayson made two changes for the game with Mike Grella coming in for Luciano Becchio who was away on father watch as his wife was expecting a baby and Leigh Bromby returned in place of Lubo Michalik. Michalik soon returned to the action though replacing Jason Crowe who pulled up in the game after seven minutes with a suspected hamstring injury. It was the home side who looked the most threatening in the early stages with Higgs pulling off a couple of good saves to deny The Dons, United themselves had chances including a free kick by Bradley Johnson. United worked themselves back into the game as the half drew on but there was few chances either way in a close contest. Higgs did pull off a wonderful save as he got down well to save an effort from a MK Dons striker and the excitement continued before the half time whistle blew with Jason Puncheon the MK Dons midfielder seeing red after a diabolical challenge on Michael Doyle. United turned it up at the start of the second half with Mike Grella, Leigh Bromby and Jermaine Beckford all having early efforts on goal while the home side were restricted to just one effort on goal in the first ten minutes. Possession equalled out as the game went on and it looked like the game was ending for a 0-0 draw with both sides making little chances. It was in the four minutes of extra time added when United finally made the breakthrough, Bradley Johnson delivered a pinpoint free-kick onto the head of Robert Snodgrass who powered the ball into the back of the net. Around 4,500 United fans watched the game at the Stadium:MK and it was the travelling faithfull who were celebrating for the final few seconds as United snatched their revenge in the final minute of the game.

Leeds United: Higgs, Crowe, Kisnorbo, Bromby, Doyle, Howson, Johnson, Hughes, Beckford, Grella, Snodgrass.
Subs: Michalik for Crowe, Robinson for Hughes, Ankergren for Higgs.

Loiners Jonny, Aidan & Lloyd
Loiners Jonathan Howson, Aidan White and Lloyd Sam here on the Victoria Park pitch walk away from the net after a another United goal. The shot coming during the pre-season friendly against Hartlepool United on the 24th July, 2010.

Loiner and United fan Jonathan Howson came through the Academy at Leeds United and made his senior debut for the club on the 19th September, 2006 in the second round of the Football League Cup which United won 3-1. Later in the same season of 2006-07 Howson was given his league debut by manager Wise which came on the 23rd December, 2006 in the 0-0 draw with Hull City at Elland Road. By the season 2007-08 Howson had established himself as the natural choice for his position winning the Young Player of the Year award and earning a new three year contract with the Whites in the bargain. Manager Simon Grayson handed the role of captain to Howson at the start of season 2009-10 due to the absence of injured fellow Loiner Richard Naylor.


Loiner and Leeds fan Aidan White came through the youth system at Elland Road after joining the academy in 2002. It was manager Gary McAllister who gave him his first first team debut when at the age of 16 he started for Leeds in the Football League Cup game against Crystal Palace on the 26th August, 2008. Aidan received a standing ovation for his efforts after he was substituted and he was soon in the action again seven days later after he started for Leeds in the first round of the Football League Trophy against Bradford City. Another impressive performance beyond his years prompted manager McAllister to give Aidan his first League start for Leeds which came in a 2-0 win over Carlisle United on the 20th September, 2008. Further strong performances from White in the season 2008-09 earned the Loiner a contract at Elland Road which lasts until June 2012.

Leeds born Lloyd Sam was signed by manager Simon Grayson on the 9th July, 2010. Sam who was out of contract with his former club Charlton Athletic had no hesitation when United's manager made the offer. Lloyd signed for the Whites in a two year deal which will keep him at his home town club till 2012.
"I was looking at a few Championship options, and started talking with Leeds... "I spoke to Frazer Richardson as well and he said that he never wanted to leave Leeds, and said a lot of good things about the club... "I'm buzzing and I'm looking forward to getting started and getting to know the lads."

Leeds United: Higgs, Connolly, Collins, Bromby, White, Snodgrass, Kilkenny, Howson, Johnson, Sam, Becchio.

Norman, Wife And A Box of Gold
Norman and wife Sue leaving No10 via the famous Prime Ministers Staircase at 10 Downing St.

Before 1974 only the eleven players who played in a World Cup Final recieved a medal. It was in November 2007 that Sepp Blatter announced that all the squad players between 1930 and 1974 that were part of a World Cup winning side should be given the medals that they should by rights have recieved originally. This was a grand gesture that was well recieved and meant that Norman Hunter the Leeds United centre back of Revie's Golden era and also Jimmy Armfield the Leeds United manager from 1974 to 1978 would finally recieve their World Cup medals. This was a justice served for the playing staff but it still overlooked the people who's contributions off the field were essential to any teams success and in England's case it was Sir Alf Ramsey the manager, United's own Les Cocker the team physio and Harold Shepherdson the team trainer. In May, 2009 however the non playing staff also looked set to recieve their medals after it was made known that 14 medals were being minted for each World Cup winning Squad, 11 for playing staff and a further 3 for coaching staff with the final decision on the recipients going to the countries regulating bodies. This meant that almost certainly Les Cocker Leeds United's backroom stalwart of the sixties and seventies would finally recieve his acknowledgement for the vital contributions he made towards England's achievement in 1966.
Les Cocker who died in 1979 did recieve his medal, his son David Cocker accepted the award on his behalf, along with Norman Hunter and Jimmy Armfield. The awards were handed out by Prime Minister Gordon Brown in a ceremony at 10 Downing Street on June 30th, 2009.

Norman Hunter from Gateshead, North East England joined Leeds United on 1st April, 1961. Spotted by the United scouts while playing for a local amateur side, Hunter gave up his job as an electrical fitter to join The Whites at the age of 15. Hunter made his first appearance for Leeds in the season 1962-63 and went on to make 41 appearances in all competiton's that season and score two goals. He soon made the No.6 shirt his own as United's centre back forming a formidable partnership with Jack Charlton that lasted for ten years and into the bargain Hunter also earned himself the nickname 'Bite Yer Legs' because of his hard no nonsense approach. Hunter spent 16 years at Elland Road, played in 15 seasons and made 722 appearances for the Whites in all competiton's plus 2 as substitute and scored 21 goals. His last season with Leeds was 1976-77 where he made 9 starts but left for Bristol City on the 8th October 1976. The successful partnership between Bobby Moore and Hunter's partner at Leeds Jack Charlton limited Hunter's apperances for the national side. He made his debut as substitute in a friendly against Spain on 12th August, 1965. Hunter won 28 caps for England and scored two goals, the national team only lost six of the games Hunter featured in. Hunter was part of the England squad that lifted the World Cup in 1966 and his last appearance wearing the three lions was against Czechoslovakia on 30th, October 1974 in an European Championship Qualifier which England won 3-0.

This meant that almost certainly Les Cocker Leeds United's backroom stalwart of the sixties and seventies would finally recieve his acknowledgement for the vital contributions he made towards England's achievement in 1966.
Les Cocker who died in 1979 did recieve his medal, his son David Cocker accepted the award on his behalf, along with Norman Hunter and Jimmy Armfield. The awards were handed out by Prime Minister Gordon Brown in a ceremony at 10 Downing Street on June 30th, 2009.

Les Cocker a former Stockport County and Accrington Stanley forward was brought to Elland Road by United manager Jack Taylor before the start of the 1960-61 season to fill the role of trainer. Cocker with his tremendous knowledge of fitness was one of the first generation to take the FA Coaching Certificate and brought with him a dedication and strict regimen that would get the best out of his players. Cocker stayed with Leeds after the departure of Taylor in 1961 and was to become an integral part of the Revie era which brought so much success to Elland Road. Known as the training ground sergeant on account of his brutal but revolutionary sessions he was soon picked up by England and offered the task of putting the international players through their paces. Cocker spent 14 years with United seeing the club through its most successful period up to date and was the England physio from 1966 up until 1977, being one of the two senior assistants to manager Sir Alf Ramsey in the England set-up that won the World Cup in 1966.

RIP Gary
A stunning tribute in yellow, white and blue flowers here for United's former Midfielder Gary Speed. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Millwall at Elland Road on the 3rd December, 2011.

On the 27th November, 2011 it was reported that Gary Speed the Welsh International and Leeds United legend had died. Found by his wife Louise at 7.00am the same morning. She telephoned the police and ambulance service who confirmed him as being dead. His death was announced to the Football Association of Wales a few hours later.
Initial reporting of the tragedy said that Gary Speed had hanged himself. The official inquest that was taken in late January recorded a narrative verdict giving the cause of death as hanging but that: "the evidence does not sufficiently determine whether this was intentional or accidental".

The tragic news soon spread to the thousands of Leeds United fans throughout the world who immediately took to the message boards and social network sites. It was decided amongst the supporters that a tribute to the United legend should be made at the following game away at Nottingham Forest. Gary Speed wore the Number Eleven shirt for Leeds. It was arranged by the fans that on the eleventh minute of the game the United fans would sing his name for eleven minutes.
A further tribute for Gary Speed was also arranged for the next home game against Millwall. Members of the Leeds Utd Forum WACCOE got together and arranged for a banner to be made. The banner 30ft x 8ft would show the Leeds United badge that was used during Speeds era and also Speeds face with the words "GO ON GARY SPEED GET ONE YOURSELF SON". The words a reference to the television commentary that came just before his goal in a 4-0 win over Sheffield United. A win that helped Leeds win the League and gain promotion in 1989-90.

Gary Speed started his time with Leeds United at an early age in 1987, joining The Whites straight from school. It was manager Howard Wilkinson who first noticed his abilities, at the time Speed was playing in the Left Back position. It was under Wilkinson's managership where Speed made his First Team debut at the age of 19. A versatile player Speed played in nine out of the ten outfield positions but it was always on the left where Speed would shine. Gary Speed soon became a regular in Wilkinson's first eleven making 12 appearances and scoring 3 goals in United's push for promotion in 1989-90. The player went on and played an instrumental role in United's Championship win of 1991-92. Notably Speed was part of that famous United Midfield that also included Gordon Strachan, Gary McAllister and David Batty a midfield that Leeds legend Eddie Gray called the greatest Midfield lineup of the modern era. Gary Speed stayed with Leeds up until 1996 before he moved to Everton the club he supported as a boy. He made 312 appearances for Leeds and scored 57 goals.

Leeds United: McCarthy, Connolly, Kisnorbo, Lees, Pugh, Brown, Snodgrass, Howson, Clayton, White, Becchio.
Subs: Sam for Howson.

Gillingham Cheese
The Cheese wedge here situated at the South East of Elland Road is the home of the Gillingham supporters for the day as Leeds United took on the Gills in the First Division encounter on 19th September, 2009.

United were looking to make it 15 league wins on the bounce at Elland Road in the game against Gillingham. Grayson kept the same team that drew away at Southend United in the previous game. Gillingham started the game brightly and it was the visitors who had the first chance on goal but the shot was fired wide, United responded straight away with a Luciano Becchio effort that was poked out by a Gills defender for a corner. Robert Snodgrass whipped in the corner for the Whites and it was Bradley Johnson who found the net with a strong header giving United the lead. Just 10 minutes later on 28 minutes it was Bradley Johnson again who found the net for Leeds firing home a low effort after a delightful ball by Jermaine Beckford that the Gillingham keeper was unable to handle. United now with a two goal advantage cruised to the half time whistle, and with just thirty seconds into the second half gone United made it three. A Robert Snodgrass ball into the box was glanced on by the head of Jermaine Beckford and Johnny Howson blasted home his first goal of the season for the Whites. On fifty minutes the visitors managed to get one back which in turn instilled a new spirit into the Gills who hadn't given up the game but that mattered little and the points were as good as rewarded on 80 minutes when Jermaine Beckford headed home his sixth goal of the season after the ball came off the cross bar from a Michael Doyle effort from outside the box. 21,026 fans turned up for the game at Elland Road and watched Grayson's men win their 15th consecutive league win on home soil.

Leeds United: Higgs, Crowe, Kisnorbo, Bromby, Doyle, Howson, Johnson, Hughes, Beckford, Becchio, Snodgrass.
Subs: Kilkenny for Crowe, Michalik for Snodgrass, Grella for Becchio.

Norman, Wife And A Box of Gold
Norman and wife Sue leaving No10 via the famous Prime Ministers Staircase at 10 Downing St.

Before 1974 only the eleven players who played in a World Cup Final recieved a medal. It was in November 2007 that Sepp Blatter announced that all the squad players between 1930 and 1974 that were part of a World Cup winning side should be given the medals that they should by rights have recieved originally. This was a grand gesture that was well recieved and meant that Norman Hunter the Leeds United centre back of Revie's Golden era and also Jimmy Armfield the Leeds United manager from 1974 to 1978 would finally recieve their World Cup medals. This was a justice served for the playing staff but it still overlooked the people who's contributions off the field were essential to any teams success and in England's case it was Sir Alf Ramsey the manager, United's own Les Cocker the team physio and Harold Shepherdson the team trainer. In May, 2009 however the non playing staff also looked set to recieve their medals after it was made known that 14 medals were being minted for each World Cup winning Squad, 11 for playing staff and a further 3 for coaching staff with the final decision on the recipients going to the countries regulating bodies. This meant that almost certainly Les Cocker Leeds United's backroom stalwart of the sixties and seventies would finally recieve his acknowledgement for the vital contributions he made towards England's achievement in 1966.
Les Cocker who died in 1979 did recieve his medal, his son David Cocker accepted the award on his behalf, along with Norman Hunter and Jimmy Armfield. The awards were handed out by Prime Minister Gordon Brown in a ceremony at 10 Downing Street on June 30th, 2009.

Norman Hunter from Gateshead, North East England joined Leeds United on 1st April, 1961. Spotted by the United scouts while playing for a local amateur side, Hunter gave up his job as an electrical fitter to join The Whites at the age of 15. Hunter made his first appearance for Leeds in the season 1962-63 and went on to make 41 appearances in all competiton's that season and score two goals. He soon made the No.6 shirt his own as United's centre back forming a formidable partnership with Jack Charlton that lasted for ten years and into the bargain Hunter also earned himself the nickname 'Bite Yer Legs' because of his hard no nonsense approach. Hunter spent 16 years at Elland Road, played in 15 seasons and made 722 appearances for the Whites in all competiton's plus 2 as substitute and scored 21 goals. His last season with Leeds was 1976-77 where he made 9 starts but left for Bristol City on the 8th October 1976. The successful partnership between Bobby Moore and Hunter's partner at Leeds Jack Charlton limited Hunter's apperances for the national side. He made his debut as substitute in a friendly against Spain on 12th August, 1965. Hunter won 28 caps for England and scored two goals, the national team only lost six of the games Hunter featured in. Hunter was part of the England squad that lifted the World Cup in 1966 and his last appearance wearing the three lions was against Czechoslovakia on 30th, October 1974 in an European Championship Qualifier which England won 3-0.

Beckford & Howson Hugs
Jermaine Beckford the United striker shows his comradery here to Jonathan Howson before his substitution on 58 minutes. Jonny was replaced by Max Gradel in the Football League First Division game against Brighton & Hove Albion at Elland Road on the 20th February, 2010.

Loiner and United fan Jonathan Howson came through the Academy at Leeds United and made his senior debut for the club on the 19th September, 2006 in the second round of the Football League Cup which United won 3-1. Later in the same season of 2006-07 Howson was given his league debut by manager Wise which came on the 23rd December, 2006 in the 0-0 draw with Hull City at Elland Road. By the season 2007-08 Howson had established himself as the natural choice for his position winning the Young Player of the Year award and earning a new three year contract with the Whites in the bargain. Manager Simon Grayson handed the role of captain to Howson at the start of season 2009-10 due to the absence of injured fellow Loiner Richard Naylor.

Jermaine Beckford was signed for Leeds United by manager Kevin Blackwell on the 16th march, 2006. Pulled from non-league Wealdstone F.C. for 50,000 pounds Beckford found it hard to find a place in Blackwell's first eleven and the striker was loaned out to Carlisle United for a month in the first quarter of the 2006-07 season. He was handed his first start for United when Dennis Wise took over the managership but was soon away on loan again, this time with Scunthorpe United. After Jermaine impressed at Scunthorpe, helping the club gain promotion to the Championship Wise gave him another chance and he started the 2007-08 season. Beckford did not disappoint as the striker scored 20 in the league that season helping the Whites reach the Play Off's. Beckford has owned the number nine shirt since and in 2008-09 became the quickest Leeds player to bag 20 goals in a season; since Hotshot Peter Lorimer during the Revie era, and soon after became only the fifth player in the clubs history to score 30 goals in a season. Beckford netted 34 times the most goals by any United player since John Charles bagged 43 in the season 1953-54.

Match report to follow.

Leeds United: Ankergren, Kisnorbo, Naylor, Lowry, Doyle, Kilkenny, Howson, McSheffrey, Johnson, Hughes, Beckford.
Subs: Gradel for Howson, Becchio for Johnson, Snodgrass for McSheffrey.
