A NEW mural to four late Leeds United legends has been unveiled in Pudsey.

The huge, impressive artwork is near Pudsey Market, and was unveiled this morning by Leeds United Supporters’ Trust.

The colourful mural features legendary Peacocks players who have died over the past 18 months.

Leeds’ two members of the 1966 World Cup winning England team – Jack Charlton and Norman Hunter – are in the artwork having both died last year, aged 85 and 76 respectively.

The highly-skilled and fearsome centre back partnership are joined by former Leeds and England captain Trevor Cherry who died last year aged 72, and also played 92 games for Bradford City.

The fourth player on the mural died early this year and is Leeds’ record goalscorer Peter Lorimer, who sadly aged 74 in March after a long illness.


Revealing the artwork this morning, Leeds United Supporters’ Trust said: “After months of hard work and planning - here is our ‘LUFC Legends’ mural.

“A tribute to Jack, Norman, Trevor and Peter by Nicolas Dixon. Please come and visit it down at Pudsey Market.”

They also thanked the Leeds United Supporters’ Club of Scandinavia who helped in the creation of the artwork.

The Scandinavian supporters’ group, which has 7,600 members, added: “Thanks to LUST and Nicolas Dixon for giving us the opportunity to be part of this mural.

“It’s a fantastic celebration of the lives and contributions of Trevor, Norman, Jack and ‘our own’ Peter.”

Nordic fans had a close affinity with Lorimer, heading to the pub he ran near Elland Road every time they came to matches.

The mural is painted on the side of Avanta Care Ltd’s building in Robin Lane in the town; the business helped fund the mural.
