Leeds United supporters have marked the tenth anniversary of club legend Gary Speed’s passing my memorialising him in a mural in Bramley.

Leeds United Supporters’ Trust has unveiled the mural at ShowOff Design and Display on Stanningley Road, which has been painted by artist Claire Bentley-Smith (also known as Poshfruit Creative).

It was commissioned in association with men’s mental health organisation ‘Andy’s Man Club’.

Ms Bentley-Smith tweeted: “The reason I wanted to paint this is because I lost my dad 27 years ago, the same way Gary died, so I am a huge advocate for men’s mental health and @andysmanclubuk

2021 marks 10 years since Speed took his own life and the mural marks the start of a series of events to celebrate the former Welsh manager’s impact on the city and raise awareness for male suicide.
