Every Now And Then....

Description: Great shot from the South Stand here at Elland Road with the action taking place on the Elland Road pitch. United lost the toss in this one and were chosen to kick towards the Kop for the first half. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Blackburn Rovers at Elland Road on the 1st September, 2012.

The South Stand at Elland Road was built in 1974 at a cost of 500,000. It replaced the old but popular barrel roofed Scratching Shed and came with state of the art facilities. The South stand originally had a standing area at the front with a 4,000 capacity and a further 3,500 fans could be seated in the upper tier. The South Stand has 32 executive boxes and in 2006 underwent further developments which included a new facade which boxed in the existing columns and alcoves giving the stand a more modern exterior. Also an overhall of the kitchen concourse area, a new mezzanine level office area, a total modernisation of the corporate facilities above and the Billy's Bar And Brasserie, named after Billy Bremner.

Leeds United: Kenny, Peltier, Lees, Pearce, Drury, Diouf, Austin, Norris, Varney, McCormack, Becchio.
Subs: Byram/Varney.
