Remembering Chris And Kevin

Description: The Leeds United fans in the South Stand at the Valley turn their backs on the game for the first two minutes to mark the anniversary of the death of Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Charlton Athletic at The Valley on the 6th April 2013. The game against Charlton took place the day after the day that marked the 13th anniversary of the passing of Kevin and Chris. The fans turned their backs emulating the actions of the fans present on the night of the game after the horrific event.

Chris and Kevin were tragically murdered while on their travels following The Whites in Europe. The devastating incident took place in Istanbul Turkey on the night before United's UEFA Cup tie against Galatasary on the 5th April, 2000. On the night of the match the United fans in attendance turned their backs in a show of respect and also disgust that the game went ahead despite the horrific murders that took place less than 24 hours before.

Leeds United: Kenny, Byram, Peltier, Pearce, Warnock, Green, Tonge, Norris, White, Morison, McCormack.
Subs: Varney/White, Brown/Tonge, Austin/Peltier.

Thanks to: Paul for this great pic.
