Leicester City Photocall – 1993-94

Brian Little’s Leicester City squad assemble on the Filbert Street turf in August 1993 for the traditional pre-season photo call.
The previous two seasons have seen them beaten at Wembley in the Play Off Final by Blackburn Rovers and Swindon Town.
Will it be third time lucky for Brian’s men?

Colin Gibson and Gary Mills, the sort of good solid pros on which City’s promotion bid will be launched.

Steve Walsh, Richard Smith, Phil Gee, Tony James and Gavin Ward check out the latest polaroids of Ormondroyd’s Nose.

New boy David Speedie… has a big job ahead of him in winning over the Leicester fans after his dive for a penalty in the 1992 Play Off Final… he ended the season with a dozen goals but suspension robbed him of another appearance at Wembley.

The new Carling Stand is taking shape on the west side of the ground, but it won’t see it’s 10th birthday.

New signing Gavin Ward is brought in by Brian Little who is worried about Kevin Poole’s lack of ‘presence’.
Ward’s superb performance in the first leg of the Play Off semi-final at Tranmere sees City through to Wembley.

Last minute hair adjustments for the team photo…

Simon Grayson will end his season leading City out at Wembley; providing the cross which leads to Steve Walsh’s winner against Derby; and becoming the first City captain to lift some silverware at Wembley.
