So this happened.

Liversedge FC had a number of items stolen from them in a recent burglary, in which tracksuits, training kits, etc., were all taken. For a semi-pro club like Liversedge, who play in the North Counties East League, a loss of this magnitude is pretty close to a disaster, as these clubs basically hope to break even every year. So it’s great to see Leeds step up and provide them with some replacements. For a club like Leeds, this kind of expense would be a drop in the bucket, but it shows, once again, that the club under Radrizzani is part of the community again.

On to the links.
