Leeds United hand new contract to highly-rated starlet Lewie Coyle

first_img1 Leeds have handed Under-21s captain Lewie Coyle a new professional contract – according to the young defender’s professional boxer brother, Tommy.The right-back has come through the ranks at the club and was handed his first pro deal during the summer.He has since spent time on loan at Harrogate Town but that was cut short following an injury.However, it is not all bad news for Coyle, who has apparently earned himself new terms at Leeds already after impressing new manager Steve Evans.His famous brother Tommy, a former IBF international lightweight champion, tweeted: “Really proud of my young brother Lewie who has just signed another contract with Leeds United.”Evans has been overjoyed by the 20-year-old’s progress since his arrival at the club, and insisted he would have stepped up into the first-team sooner if not a suspension he picked up in action for the club’s U21s side.Speaking ahead of Friday’s friendly against Wycombe, Evans told the club’s official website: “We’d have loved to have played young Coyley, he’d have certainly played a part.“I love that boy and he’s got a real chance, but he’s suspended and the FA advised us that we can’t involve him at Wycombe, otherwise he would have been.“His time will come. In the short term we need to get him playing men’s football from Under-21s – there’s a world of difference when three points are at stake.“We need to get him playing football . Whether that’s sending him out for a little while… We’re looking at all the options now.“He’s training with the first team every day now and in two-and-a-half to three weeks, I’ve seen him get much, much better. And I mean significantly better.” Leeds United hand new contract to highly-rated starlet Lewie Coyle last_img read more

Liverpool owners perform ticket pricing U-turn

first_img1 Liverpool’s owners have performed a U-turn on proposed ticket increases after apologising to fans for getting their plans wrong.Principal owner and John W Henry and chairman Tom Werner were understood to be shocked at the sight of an estimated 10,000 fans walking out of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League match against Sunderland in the 77th minute in protest at increases next season which included a new £77 match ticket and the club’s first £1,000 season ticket.It is understood they were also surprised by the level of abuse directed at them – fans chanted ‘You greedy b******s, enough is enough’ before walking out.Henry and Werner were keen to stress they believe the connection between supporters is “unique and sacred” and that is the reason they have acted so swiftly to prevent further damage to their relationship with the fanbase.Having promised an immediate review the American-based owners have listened to the concerns of fans and moved quickly to try to rectify the situation.As a result they have announced a number of changes to their initial proposals in a structure which will also remain for the 2017/18 season.Revenue generated from ticket prices will be frozen at 2015-16 levels; this means the highest match-day price for a general admission ticket will remain at £59 – the lowest will be £9 and these tickets will be offered for every match with an allocation of 10,000 across the season.The highest season ticket price will be frozen at £869 and the lowest £685.Liverpool’s owners have also announced the removal of game categorisations, so regardless of the opposition, supporters will pay the same price for match day tickets.“It has been a tumultuous week,” said an open letter jointly signed by Henry and Werner.“On behalf of everyone at Fenway Sports Group and Liverpool Football Club we would like to apologise for the distress caused by our ticket pricing plan for the 2016/17 season.“We were strongly engaged in the process to develop the ticketing plan for 2016/2017.“We met directly with representatives of LFC’s Supporters’ Committee and along with LFC management, wholeheartedly agreed with major concerns raised, notably: access for local and young supporters; engagement and access to Anfield for local children; access to Premier League matches for those in Liverpool most challenged by affordability.“We believe the plan successfully addressed these concerns and are disappointed that these elements have been either lost or, worse, characterised as cynical attempts to mask profiteering in the plan as a whole.“Rather, we prefer to look at them as the parts of the ticketing plan we got right.“On the other hand, part of the ticketing plan we got wrong.” Anfield last_img read more
