The League is proud to sponsor the Leeds United Ladies football team.
We stand against cruelty in what hunters, shooters, coursers and dog fighters will call their ‘sport’ – but what they perpetuate is not what you and I would understand as truthfully sporting. The values of fair play, competitiveness, winning with grace and losing with dignity are values to be cherished and to be found in abundance in the ladies side, although they have not been getting a lot of practice about being dignified losers lately.
They’ve had an exceptional start to this season in the Women’s Premier League. They are sitting top of the table and they have a game in hand on Coventry in second place. Last weekend the Ladies scored a comprehensive 5-0 victory over Aston Villa, and two players have secured call ups to the England U19 squad – and on this form it won’t be long until they are troubling the senior squad.
This weekend the Ladies have a crunch match against similarly high flying Sunderland. Everyone at the League wishes you the best of luck, and we’ll update you on the progress of Leeds United Ladies later in the season.
If you want to keep up to date with them in the mean time you can follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
