Higgs & Bessone

Submitted: 09/16/10
Description: Shane Higgs the United goalkeeper and Federico Bessone caught here just before kick off on the Elland Road pitch. The shot coming just before the Football League Championship game against Swansea City on the 11th September, 2010. Both Shane and Federico played the full ninety minutes for Leeds in the game against the Jacks.

Shane Higgs was signed by Simon Grayson on the 3rd July, 2009. Coming to Leeds from Cheltenham Town while on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers Higgs signed a one year deal. Higgs put in some excellent performance during the 2009-10 pre-season friendlies which earned him the Number One jersey at Elland Road taking over from Casper Ankergren as the first choice keeper.

The Argentinian Federico Bessone became manager Simon Grayson's fourth signing of the Summer, coming from Swansea City on the 16th June, 2010. Grayson signed Bessone on a three year deal and he joins fellow countryman Luciano Becchio at Elland Road. The United manager had watched Bessone the previous season, delighted with the move Grayson said: "He had the opportunity of a contract at Swansea but he turned that down to come and join us..... "We're delighted we've got him..... He's technically a very good player, can pass the ball and defend..."

Leeds United: Higgs, Connolly, Naylor, Collins, Bessone, Gradel, Howson, Kilkenny, Johnson, Becchio, Watt.
Subs: Sam for Watt, McCormack for Kilkenny, Somma for Becchio.
