Share your North Stand memories with us
On Friday 29th September, the famous Headingley North Stand will witness its last game and we are inviting all fans to contribute to the celebrations and mark their place in history.
Construction on the new North Stand began in 1932 to replace the previous stand which was destroyed by a fire during the Good Friday clash with Halifax on the 25th March 1932. The Stand has witnessed some of the most famous days in the stadium’s history on both the rugby and cricket side, it holds a unique position in world sport and has been the place that, for over a century, Leeds players have called home within the confines of the inner sanctum of the dressing room.
The game on 29th September will be a celebration of the last 85 years and will also see us say goodbye to two legends of the club, Rob Burrow and Danny McGuire, as they make their final appearance at Headingley. However, the thing that makes the North Stand so special is the people who are in it, generations of supporters have backed the team from the famous wooden seats, passing on their membership to the next generation and we want your memories and recollections from down the years.
It might be a player you remember making his debut or an incredible individual achievement or a memorable match. Or perhaps it is something more personal to you, your first game or maybe taking your child or grandchild to their first game. Whatever makes the Nouth Stand special to you, we want to hear about it.
We have created a special page to bring everyones memories together in one place, have you a look if you need some inspiration at www.wakelet.com/@northstand for more information.
