United still suite on legendary Currie

Sheffield United have honoured one of its most celebrated players by naming a suite after him at Bramall Lane.

Former attacking midfielder Tony Currie played for the Blades from 1968 to 1976, scoring an impressive 68 goals.

Fans will now be able to celebrate his successful contribution to the club while watching the current team from the renamed Tony Currie Suite which was unveiled during the Yorkshire derby against Leeds.

Tony said: “Sheffield United is a club that holds lots of fond memories for me so I’m thrilled to have a suite named after me.” The ex-England international attended the event with his wife Liz and was reunited with Len Badger, the captain on the day he made his Blades debut against Spurs in February 1968 and scored with a header in a 3-2 win.
