Always Leeds - Always Loyal
President - Josh Warrington
Leeds born & bred Josh did not need time to think when approached to take on the Presidency of LUSC. He was proud to take on the role in his home town club. Shortly after taking office Josh became the first Leeds born boxer to win a World title, when, on 30th Jan 2018, he took a split decision at Elland Road from Lee Selby to become IBF World featherweight Champion. Josh is reported to have said he had to win the fight, as he was fed up with seeing road signs leading to "Selby" when he travelled around Leeds. He is an active participant in the Supporters Club, and is frequently seen at Elland Road when his training schedule allows.
Vice President - Ray Fell
I first started watching Leeds United in the first season after the war, 1946-'47. Leeds United were relegated that year with 18 points, a total which still holds the record for the lowest ever total in the 1st Division. After sharing my younger years between playing local football and watching Leeds United I joined the Supporters Club in the 1960s and was soon involved in starting the Brittania, later re-named Holbeck Branch of the Supporters Club
I joined the Executive Committee of the Supporters Club as Fund Raising Secretary in the early '70s before moving on to be appointed Assistant Secretary, Treasurer and finally Chairman in 1985.
Ray retired as chairman of LUSC on 3rd July 2016, taking up his current position of Vice President.
Chairman - John Mann
My own trials for Leeds boys didn’t succeed in 1970, though we were schools champions, but I had already begun my Leeds fandom from age 4 in the first season back in the top flight under DonRevie.
I stood high up on the Lowfields Road initially, with my three legged buffet for height and as was the way was passed over the turnstiles to gain free entry. Newcastle is my first vivid match recollection, but Man Utd away at age 5 in uncle Albert’s car from his pub in Mixenden is the most vivid memory. I can remember Jim Baxter causing us immense problems and How Paul Reaney always stopped George Best.
Big matches were hard to get tickets for but I was never once locked out of Elland Road , no doubt helped by my family living around St Luke’s church and the routine walking along Elland Road to and from games. I was there for the League Cup and Fairs Cup victories , my first semi final was the deafest but Everton in 1968, and my travels included Hampden with a full house and Sutton with just a handful of us.
Those days I learned the arts of token collecting, swopping and trading and cutting and repasting to get tickets. I did the art work, the old man the queuing.From the highs to the lows , the ups and downs, the brilliant and the not for brilliant, once Leeds always Leeds from generation down generation.
I just wish the great grandparents have saved those early programmes instead of using them on the fire.
Secretary - Chris Hall
I was first taken to Elland Road by my grandad in the mid 60's. I started to attend away games in season 1981/82 and joined the Three Legs Branch of LUSC. I joined Fullerton Park in 1992, I have been lucky enough to see Leeds play matches all over Europe and most of these trips were organised by fellow Supporters' Club Members. I was a former bond holder and have a 20 year season ticket, I joined the Top Table in 2006 as Irish and Overseas Representative moving to Assistant Secretary later in the same year, before taking up my current position in 2008.
Treasurer - Phil Beeton
Phil began supporting Leeds in late 1957 when as a mere youngster he was led to Elland Road by his father, a keen supporter himself from before the War. A season ticket holder since 1964 Phil has just reached the milestone of attending 1,800 consecutive league games.
Phil's membership of the Supporters Club began in 1972 and in 1979, along with his wife Chris he helped form the Griffin Branch. After several years as Assistant Secretary on the LUSC Executive Phil agreed to take over the vacant position of Treasurer in June 2003.
