When Leeds fans speak, at least one board listens to them
The Leeds United Supporters’ Trust’s message is now displayed outside Elland Road for the fans to see, after our new advert was unveiled this morning.
The advert reads, ‘Leeds United Supporters’ Trust believe our club should match the ambition of our fans,’ and asks fans to join the Trust, which now has over 8,000 members.
With a prime position outside the main entrance to the East Stand on Lowfields Road, the advert will be in place for an initial period of a month, during which time it will be seen by thousands of visitors to Elland Road.
Several of our members had suggested that L.U.S.T. should use spaces around Elland Road to make our message about the need for positive change at Leeds United more widely known. Acting on these ideas, the Trust board worked with local company City Ads to find the right location for an advert. Graphic designer Wayne Gamble (The Beaten Generation) produced the artwork for us, and the sign was put in place on Saturday 15th September. We think the advert is a great example of how, by listening to our members and working with local companies, L.U.S.T. can make things happen at Elland Road.
Although the new advert was not toasted by a win for Leeds at Cardiff, we hope it will bring more luck to Neil Warnock and his players in the upcoming games against Hull, Nottingham Forest and Everton.
