Leeds United paid tribute to Les Reed OBE, as the news of his passing went around yesterday.
#LUFC are saddened to learn of the passing of Les Reed OBE, the co-writer of our club anthem, Marching on Together. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time pic.twitter.com/c4bmFSBdSk— Leeds United (@LUFC) April 16, 2019
Reed was the co-author of Marching On Together and so it’s only right that the club paid their respects to the man and what he gave to the club.
