LUFC On This Day - July 22nd

LUFC On This Day - July 22nd

A look back at what has been reported on Vital Leeds on July 22nd in recent history at Leeds United.

2006
Leeds lose their first pre-season friendly of the summer with a 2-1 defeat at Hartlepool United.

Steve Stone scores a consolation goal for Leeds after going two behind.

Robbie Elliott and Mark Fotheringham are both involved having joined the club on trial.

David Livermore makes his first appearance having signed from Millwall the previous day.

Leeds side:
Sullivan, Kelly, Butler (Gregan 60) Foxe, Elliot, Stone, Bakke, Fotheringham (Griffiths 73), Livermore (Richardson 78), Healy, Blake (Beckford 46). Subs (not used): Bennett, Parker

2009
Leeds sign experienced defender Patrick Kisnorbo from Leicester City on a two-year deal.

A number of clubs were chasing Kisnorbo but he decided on a move to Elland Road. Speaking on the official website, Kisnorbo said, 'There were other clubs interested, but I saw more in this club than in the others.'

Leeds are to give a trial to Ivory Coast striker Moussa Sanogo. Sanogo was due to play in the previous night`s friendly at Grimsby Town, but Leeds failed to obtain international clearance in time for the game.

2011
Leeds are dealt a blow with the news that striker Luciano Becchio will miss the start of the season after undergoing surgery on the hamstring injury that forced him to miss the end of last season.

Boss Simon Grayson denies that last season`s player of the year Max Gradel has handed in a transfer request. Speaking about Gradel, Grayson said, 'I don`t know where people get this stuff from. There`s been no written transfer request and no unrest from him.' (A month later and he`s gone)

2012
Leeds United are giving a trial to young French defender Sebastien Faure

The 21 year old played in Leeds 2-0 win at Alfreton Town on Saturday.

Faure is a free agent after being released by top French Ligue 1 side Lyon at the end of last season.

The young centre back made his debut for Lyon in the 2008/09 season against Metz in the French League cup after coming through the clubs academy system.


Neil Warnock says he is looking to bring in up to eight players in the next couple of weeks.

Warnock has been frustrated in the transfer market so far this summer, adding just four new signings to his squad.

The new championship season is now just four weeks away from kicking off and Warnock is looking ahead to a busy couple of weeks in the transfer market Speaking prior to the game at Farsley Celtic on Friday night, Warnock said, 'Over the next few weeks hopefully there will be a number of additions.

'I am looking for players that are going to make a difference and not just squad players.

'At the moment I am doing the best I can to put a good squad together to give us a good chance this season.

'I would like to bring another eight players in. You need a squad; it is not just the top end of the market players. You need back up when you get injuries so you need a decent squad.
'

The squad is looking thin at the moment. So far, Warnock has brought in Jason Pearce, Paul Green, Adam Drury and Paddy Kenny and he has seen Adam Clayton and Andy Lonergan leave for fellow championship clubs.

The Leeds boss started his summer clearout at the end of last season with Ben Parker, Mika Vayrynen, Mikael Forssell, Danny Webber and Alex Bruce all released by the club.

Warnock also has five players on the transfer list with Paul Rachubka, Paul Connolly, Andy O`Brien, Ramon Nunez and Billy Paynter seen as surplus to requirements. He is looking to bring in enough players to complement the first choice players as well as those good enough to come into the side when injuries and suspensions affect the side. 'I am looking to bring in a substantial amount of players over the next few weeks. There will also be players leaving; we have a number on the transfer list.

'It disappoints me that we haven`t got more players in at this stage of the season. I think anything is possible over the next couple of weeks; it is just a matter of getting them over the line,' added Warnock.
