LUFC On this day August 1st - Livermore gone!


A look back at what happened at Leeds United on August 1st in recent history.

2006

Leeds finish off their pre-season campaign with a 1-1 draw at Grimsby Town.

GRIMSBY TOWN 1 (McDermott 9) LEEDS UNITED 1 (Lewis 52)

Leeds United: Ward, Richardson (Madden 65), Bonasel (Camfield 77), Gregan, Benscheidr, Einarsson (Hird 56), Asaba (Gardner 46), Bayly, Beckford, Moore (Garra 56, Howson 84), Lewis (Morris 65). Subs: Wilberforce.


Leeds are giving trials to five new players. German defender Roland Benschneider, French defender Jerome Bonnissel and Senegalese international midfielder Aliou Cisse, join goalkeeper Darren Ward and striker Carl Asaba at Elland Road.


Amazingly just ten days after signing for Leeds, David Livermore leaves Leeds to sign for Hull City.

2007
Leeds United duo Jermaine Beckford and Jonathan Douglas will not miss any first-team action because of their pre-season dismissals.

Douglas was sent-off against FC Energie Cottbus for using 'foul and abusive' language, while Beckford was given his marching orders for dissent in the same game. However, as the match was a friendly the players will only miss reserve-team fixture.

2008
Leeds complete the signing of Argentinian Luciano Becchio on a three-year deal after a successful trial with the club.

2009
Leeds finish off their pre-season campaign with a 2-1 win at Premier League side Burnley. Mike Grella and Andy Robinson on target for Leeds.

Team
Ankergren, Crowe (Huntington 63), Marques (Michalik 46), Kisnorbo (Snodgrass 63), Parker (White 75), Hughes, Howson, Prutton, Johnson (Robinson 63), Showunmi (Sheehan80), Grella

2011
Jonny Howson is confirmed as the new club captain for the 2011/12 season.

Howson replaced Richard Naylor who was released at the end of the previous season.
