Alwoodley Gates 7.10am

LUSC Dinner & Dance:

This event has been CANCELLED!

This is due to the fact that Josh Warrington will be boxing at The Leeds Arena and most of the LUSC and the guests planning to come to the Dinner & Dance will be in attendance at this fight. The LUSC exec has decided to organise the Dinner & Dance event for some time at the start of next season. Discussions were had at the last LUSC exec meeting regarding changing the date to a midweek evening, but it was pointed out that the players probably wouldn’t be able to attend, and the best time would be after a Saturday home game.

The Damned United:

We have been given flyers for the upcoming production of The Damned United at Leeds Playhouse. The play is adapted from the David Peace novel of the same name. It begins w/c Friday March 4th until Saturday April 2nd. The branch will be hoping to run a bus to this play from Harrogate. The Media & Publicity Officer has contacted The Playhouse regarding group discounts and prices. We will aim to look to an early to midweek showing, possibly on Monday March 14th as the author David Peace will be doing a post show discussion that evening. Please get in touch with the Secretary via the usual channels for further info.

Monthly Branch meeting:

Sunday February 7th 2016 8pm, Londesborough Club, Bower Road, Harrogate.

Agenda items include upcoming away fixtures, LUSC Annual Dinner and discussion around deadline for 2015/16 branch memberships.

FA Cup 5th Round – Watford away date tbc:

The branch will definitely be running a bus to this fixture, regardless of date and time. Bookings are currently restricted to fully paid up branch members, as at Friday 29th January 2016. Once the ticket allocation is confirmed, members will have 5 days to confirm their booking. After this period, non members will be able to book on the coach subject to availability.

LUSC Annual Dinner & Dance 16th April 2016 (after the Reading home game):

We are currently taking bookings for the annual event. The branch will subsidise the cost of the tickets to a very reasonable £30, for the three course meal and the award presentations, disco etc. afterwards. Once the menu has been confirmed, it will be available to view on here and the facebook page. The event is to be held at Elland Road in the Banqueting Suite in the West Stand. Please support this event, The Player Of The Year will receive his award and it is hoped that the manager and the team will be present as they were last year. Steve Evans has accepted Honorary Membership of the LUSC at his last attendance at an LUSC exec meeting, and providing he is still the manager, has been invited by the LUSC to attend. Former players and managers have also been invited, as has the President of the LUSC, Gary Kelly. Once attendees have confirmed, we will let you know.

Away Games:

The Birmingham away game has yet to be confirmed. We will be running a bus to this fixture once the date has been confirmed. Bookings will be taken via the usual channels please. Once the Brighton fixture has been confirmed, tickets will be ordered for any members wishing to attend. The branch will not be running a bus to this fixture, but we can inquire on the behalf of any members requiring transport with other LUSC branches.
