Moris And Lees To The Faithful

Description: Steve Moris United's Forward here and Defender Tom Lees applaud the travelling White Army for their support throughout the game. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on the 9th March, 2013. Tom Lees played the full game for Leeds while Steve Morison started the game and scored two goals but was replaced on 90 minutes by Habib Habibou.

Neil Warnock the United manager signed Steve Morison from Norwich City on the 31st January, 2013, the last day of the transfer window, on a three-and-a-half-year contract. The Forward came to Leeds as part of a swap deal which saw the Argentine Luciano Becchio go the other way with Leeds United also getting an undisclosed sum as part of the deal. The Forward made his debut for Leeds in the Championship game against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on the 9th February, 2013 and scored his first goal for The Whites just two games later in United's victory over Blackpool at Elland Road on the 20th February. The United manager told the official site after the deal had been done, "Steve meets all the requirements of the striker we've been looking to bring in. For me, he is a player who has everything. He can score goals from anywhere - whether it's 25 yards or a tap-in - he has pace, and he has all the attributes you want."


Tom Lees born in Warwick is a product of the Youth System at Elland Road and broke into the first team when he featured in United's pre-season friendlies of 2009. Manager Simon Grayson sent him out on loan to Accrington Stanley when the 2009-10 season started to gain match experience. After the season ended Lees returned to Elland Road where he again featured in Leeds' pre-season games but for the 2010-11 was loaned out to Bury for six months for the player to gain more match experience. After impressing at Bury the Leeds Manager Simon Grayson offered Lees a new contract and on the 10th December, 2010 he signed a two and half year contract with The Whites. His loan period was also extended where Lees spent the rest of the season playing first team football for Bury. Lees returned to Elland Road for the season 2011-12 playing in all of United's pre season fixtures. Manager Grayson decided his time had come, he made his debut for Leeds in the FL Cup 1st Round tie against Bradford City at Elland Road on the 9th August, 2011 and just seven days later scored his first goal for Leeds in the Football League Championship game against Hull City at Elland Road.
