Sedge helped by Leeds United

15th December, 2017

Liversedge have been given a big boost by EFL side Leeds United as they continue to rebuild after their clubhouse was broken into last month.

The Toolstation NCEL Premier Division team have revealed that their Championship neighbours have donated training kit, tracksuits and bench coats to the Cleckheaton outfit.

That will replace some of the items that were stolen on Tuesday 21st November, 2017, when three doors were damaged and all of the club's bar stock was also taken.

Sedge took to Twitter to thank Leeds owner and chairman Andrea Radrizzani as well as James Mooney who is head of media and communications at Elland Road.
