Members of the Scarborough Branch of the Leeds United Members’ Club turned out in force last Wednesday at a fundraiser for their honorary President Brendan Ormsby.
The former Leeds skipper who made 16 league appearances for Scarborough in the 1992-93 season sadly suffered a stroke shortly before Christmas and is currently recovering at home in Leeds.
The fundraiser held at Elland Road saw a host of former Leeds United players give guest speeches including Eddie Gray, Simon Grayson, Glynn Snodin and Ian Baird with the proceeds from the evening being donated to the Ormsby family to aid his recovery.
Mark Stanger, club secretary of the Scarborough Whites said: ‘Since we formed in 2006 Brendan has been a massive help to our club and we were truly shocked of the news of his illness. The evening was a very emotional night but hopefully the money raised will help him get back on track’.
The Ormsby family and hopefully Brendan himself will run the annual Leeds 10k in July to raise funds for the Stroke Association. To make a donation please visit:
