Sheffield United’s new disabled supporters’ lounge has been officially opened by club legend Chris Morgan, which it is named after.

Former Blades captain Morgan was on hand, along with fellow club legend Tony Currie, to cut the ribbon at the Sheffield United Disabled Supporters’ lounge on level two of the John Street stand.

The ceremony took place immediately before the Blades’ first home game of the new season against Chesterfield.

Sheffield United vice president Graham Moore introduced the guests and the event was hosted by SUDS mainstay Janet Ireland and Dave McCarthy, operations director at Sheffield United.

Dave said: “Sheffield United is a club committed to making football accessible for all fans, and the opening of the new SUDS lounge will go some way to making accessibility easier for our disabled supporters and be a place they can meet in and socialise before games.

“Disability should not prevent any supporter from watching and supporting the team they love in style and comfort.

“We’re delighted to open the lounge with the help and support of one of our most notable former players.”
