LUFC On This Day - 14th June

LUFC On This Day - 14th June

A look back at what happened on this day June 14th in the history of Leeds United.

Leeds have never played a game on this day in their history, so today we look back in the Vital Leeds archives of the last few years to see what was being reported.

2007
The Football League announces the fixtures for the 2007/08 season and Leeds will start life in League One with a trip to Tranmere Rovers.

Harrogate & Knaresborough Liberal Democrat MP Phil Willis has called for an enquiry into whether criminal activity has taken place at Leeds United during the administration process.

In a commons motion, Willis has called on the Serious Organised Crime Agency and Serious Fraud Office to investigate the clubs financial status and just what involvement Ken Bates` offshore accounts had in the CVA agreement.

The petition, co-signed by the Liberal Democrats Sports Spokesman Bob Russell states: 'That this house. . . is appalled that the owners of Leeds United, Forward Sports Fund, not only avoided the effects of points deduction by going into administration after relegation from the Championship was confirmed, but re-emerged from administration within 24 hours having abandoned £35m worth of debts.'

The issue that £7million owed to HM Revenue & Customs was wiped off during the administration process has also been brought into the argument, but it was Revenue & Customs that Ken Bates actually blamed for the club slipping into administration: Bates said: 'The Inland Revenue acted extremely unreasonably.

Over the last two-and-a-half years Leeds have paid between £15m and £20m to the Revenue, but our cash flow dried up and we asked for a holiday.

The Revenue said no and put forward the petition to wind up the club. I'm sorry small creditors have lost money, but that is totally down to the Revenue.'

2011
Leeds United have once again lost one of their talented youngsters, this time Elliott Kebbie is reportedly ready to sign for Spanish giants Barcelona.

Leeds official website have announced that Kebbie has moved to Spain with his mother after spending eight years at the Leeds United Academy after he turned down the offer of a scholarship at Elland Road.

The 16-year-old was also linked with a move to Manchester United during last season and the club will be looking for compensation should he sign for another club.

2012
Leeds have been handed a home draw in the first round of the Capital One League Cup. Shrewsbury Town will make the trip to Elland Road.
