SHEFFIELD United manager Danny Wilson and his new signings will sign autographs at the club’s annual open day.

The manager and signings including Haiti international Lescinel Jean-Francois will meet Blades fans expected to flock to the free event on Sunday, July 31.

There will also be a fun fair, stalls and football games and United’s video analyst will also be in action.

Tours of changing rooms and the tunnel area have also been organised.

United’s managing director Dave McCarthy said: “Our open day has proved tremendously popular throughout the years and hopefully this event will be no different.

“As part of our ongoing engagement with supporters, we’d like to use this opportunity to invite all Unitedites down to the Lane for a few hours of entertainment.

“There’s plenty of free fun, including tours, the chance to get players’ signatures and climb aboard our official team coach.”

The open day will run from 10am until 2pm, ahead of United’s final pre-season friendly against Blackpool.

Tickets for the game, which kicks-off at 3pm, cost £7 for adults and £3 for children and OAPs.

Season ticket holders can buy one ticket and get one free.
