SHEFFIELD United have honoured one of their most celebrated players by naming a suite after him at Bramall Lane.

Blades can now watch their heroes from the comfort of the prestigious Tony Currie Suite, named after the inspirational attacking midfielder who wowed the Kop from 1968 to 1979.

Tony said: “I am absolutely delighted to have a suite named after me at Bramall Lane because United holds so many special memories for me.”

Ex-England star Tony attended the event with his wife Liz and was reunited with Len Badger, the captain on the day he made his Blades debut against Spurs on February 26 1968, scoring with a header in a 3-2 win.

United head of operations Dave McCarthy said: “It’s a fitting tribute to name a suite at Bramall Lane after Tony Currie because he is a true Blades hero, known and loved by fans and everyone at the club.”
