Hedley and Ken discussed the situation at the Leeds United annual dinner. For many years the Club Olympus Poolside Bar has been the official Leeds United Supporters Club Branch in Tenerife. Under the new Bates regime things have changed and a new format of supporters club is now in place. Discussions are under way to make sure that Leeds United supporters in Tenerife are looked after properly. Mr Bates was very supportive and swung things into place immediately to ensure that Leeds United fans in Tenerife and holiday makers who are visiting the resort have the best access to Fan’s resources. This includes having LUFC TV in place as soon as is technically possible. This live feed via the internet will show Leeds games as they happen.

Hedley said “it was a pleasure to meet Ken and he swung into action immediately to ensure that everything was being done to assist us, Jane and I had a super evening as guests of Leeds United and were very impressed with the efficiency of the management team, Leeds are playing great football at the moment and Mr Bates is determined to get Leeds back to where they belong, at the top of the Premiership. We wish Ken, Dennis and everyone at Leeds United all the best!”
