New display unveiled in Legends Museum

12 June 2015

A brand new cabinet has been unveiled in our 'Legends of the Lane' museum.

The 'Dendale' cabinet is dedicated to the support given to both the Club and the project by business owner Don Dickinson over the last decade. The display will change periodically to showcase some of the great names who helped to build the Club that we know and love today, keeping the memories alive for supporters now and in the future.

The cabinet was unveiled by Don and his daughter Nina and is a proud addition to the 1915 FA Cup Centenary display premiered a few short weeks ago.

Local businessman and lifelong Blade Don said: "It is a passion of mine to keep this great Club's history alive, the cabinet is a great opportunity to show that proud past through the medals, trophies, caps and other assorted memorabilia these great Blades won and to have the Dendale brand associated with it."

The Dendale display currently features the medals and caps won by Victorian Blade Tommy Morren and a shirt worn by Blades giant William 'Fatty' Foulkes and is quite simply superb.

Club historian John Garrett commented: "Don has been a loyal friend and supporter to both Sheffield United and Legends of the Lane and as a sponsor and Box holder, it is a great honour to have the Dendale cabinet as a main part of the Museum. Don has played a huge part in preserving our past for future generations, he is a true Blade and a true friend to all at the Club."

Tours of the Stadium and the Legends Museum will be back as soon as the work on the ground is completed in readiness for the new season.
