LUFC On this day August 2nd - Leeds lift shield

A look back at what happened at Leeds United on August 2nd in recent history.

1969

We will actually start with one from 1969 when Leeds United lifted the Charity Shield with a 2-1 win over Manchester City at Elland Road.

Jack Charlton and Eddie Gray are on target in front of almost 40,000 fans.


Leeds and Ipswich agreed a deal that sees Ian Westlake join Leeds and Dan Harding move in the opposite direction.


After weeks of talking about it, Leeds chairman Ken Bates finally reported Chelsea to the FA for the alleged tapping-up of three of United`s bright young stars.

Two of these players, Tom Taiwo and Michael Woods, have since joined the Londoners with Danny Rose opting to stay at Elland Road.

2009
Manchester City and Aston Villa both admit their interest in Leeds young midfielder Fabian Delph, who sat out the win at Burnley the previous day with his future looking away from Elland Road.

2010
Leeds boss Simon Grayson is boosted by the news that the injury suffered by Robert Snodgrass in Norway the previous week is not as bad as first thought although he is likely to be out until September.

2011
Leeds United lost out in their bid to sign midfielder Keith Andrews.

The 30 year old decided not to join Leeds after negotiations with the club, stating better options lay elsewhere at this moment in time, according to his agent.
