Ashdown Peltier And Arms

Ashdown Peltier And Arms

Description: The United players here prepare for an incoming free kick in front of the Gelderd End at Elland Road. The shot coming from the Football Association Cup 4th Round at Elland Road against Tottenham Hotspur on the 27th January, 2013. Both Ashdown and Peltier played the full game for Leeds against the North London outfit.

Lee Peltier a long time target of the Leeds United Boss Neil Warnock signed for The Whites on the 4th August, 2012. Coming from Leicester City the no nonsense Defender's cost to the Elland Road kitty was a reported 600k making him the most expensive player of manager Warnock's Summer spending spree. Lee made his debut for The Whites in the Football League Cup game against Shrewsbury Town on the 11th August, 2012. He was made captain of United a week later for the Championship opener at Elland Road in the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Lee told the official site after his move: "I had a few options, but I sat down with my family and friends, and went through them all, and Leeds was my first choice. You look at the fan base and the size of the club is massive, the gaffer can attract players with his record, and I wanted to come here."

The Leeds United manager Neil Warnock signed goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown from Portsmouth on the 23rd July 2012 on a two year contract. Ashdown a regular at Portsmouth joined up with the United squad for their pre-season tour of Cornwall before the start of the 2012-13 campaign and featured in five of the seven matches down south. Jamie was brought in by Warnock to provide some competition for the current United number one Paddy Kenny and was impressive in both domestic Cup runs of 2012-13 including the FA Cup win against Premier League high-flyers Tottenham Hotspur at Elland Road. The United boss after the signing told the official site,"He's had Middlesbrough and a few others talking to him, but I wanted him to sign and commit himself and this week he told me he would. He has good presence and he'll be good for Paddy as well."

Leeds United: Ashdown, Byram, Peltier, Lees, White, Green, Brown, Austin, Varney, Diouf, McCormack.
Subs: Pearce/Diouf, Somma/McCormack.
