Leeds United playing at Farsley AFC is great to see

For the second season running, the Leeds United first team will play a friendly at Farsley AFC.
Last summer, over 2500 people turned out at Throstle Nest for the special occasion which saw many of Neil Warnock’s squad make their debuts for United.
It will be a similar situation when Brian McDermott brings Leeds to Farsley on July 6th.
But, while Leeds supporters will get a glimpse of the team from close proximity, the important factor is making Farsley some money and getting some exposure.
It is a great opportunity for Farsley to show off.
Every single Leeds United supporter that walks through the door is a potential future customer to Farsley.
Not all Leeds fans travel to away games. If they are impressed with the facilities and standard of the team, they may choose to watch Farsley in an Evo Stik Division One North league game.
The Farsley junior club also have a chance to recruit new players to their successful teams.
A friendly with Leeds is like a manna from heaven for Farsley so they need to take full advantage.
McDermott and the Leeds board also need to take credit for agreeing to the friendly because it is good to see the Championship club giving back to the community.
It is going to be another great occasion. Now all eyes are on Farsley to make the day one to remember.
