Leeds museum venture gets going

Earlier this year it was reported that Leeds United were considering the establishment of a club museum in a newly developed stand of the stadium Elland Road. In June these plans were place before the councillors of Leeds and now in november the project moves into the next phase where appointed curator Helen Castle is documenting the huge number of objects and archive material in the club's possession.
And now, Leeds United has also made a public appeal for club artifacts, via local press "Yorkshire Evening Post".

People with United memorabilia which they think deserves a place in the
spotlight are asked to contact Shirley Whitehead on the YEP newsdesk on
+44 0113 238 8917 or Helen Castle on +44 0113 367 6320.

The Leeds United Museum will cover about 400 square metres in the East stand of Elland Road and plans, not without ambition, to open in early 2012.
