Video: Leeds United 1970s squad gather for Don Revie memorial

Avid fans of Leeds United travelled from all over the country to meet their football heroes.

Members of the legendary 1970's squad returned to Elland Road to support a bid to build a permanent memorial to their old boss Don Revie.

Local heroes Allan Clark, Norman Hunter and Peter Lorimer joined Trevor Cherry, Peter Lorimer, Eddie Gray and Mike O'Grady to boost the 90,000 campaign for a statue commemorating the much-loved Leeds manager.

The artwork has been commissioned by Jim Cadman, a long-time admirer of Revie and his achievements at Elland Road.

He said: "This was a once in a lifetime occasion for many people.

"They travelled from all over the country to meet their heroes and ask them questions about those glory days."

Reunited Leeds stars signed copies of the 64-page Revie tribute magazine.

The magazine has just been published to raise funds and the former legends chatted to fans who have also invested some 250 each in miniature versions of the Graham Ibbeson sculpture which will grace the Elland Road stadium.

Target date for installation is 2012- the 40th anniversary of the team's 1972 FA Cup win against Arsenal.

A gala dinner is planned at Elland Road in October 2011 to mark the 50th anniversary of Don Revie's arrival in Leeds.

United fans interested in supporting fundraising plans should e-mail jwc@donreviestatue.com or ring 01562 887323.

Don Revie was manager at Leeds between 1961 and 1974.

He died in 1989, aged 61.
