PHOTO: Bobby Collins Way sign unveiled

Elland Road legend Bobby Collins' achievements at the club have been recognised by naming a road after him.

A road-sign designed to commemorate Leeds legend Bobby Collins has been unveiled today.

Collins' achievements in a Whites shirt are being recognised by having a street named after him and the council put the sign up this morning.

Collins died in January this year, but his legacy at Elland Road will live on after a memorable spell at the club.

A diminutive midfielder, Collins represented the Whites for five years in the 1960's, helping the side to great success during Don Revie's famous reign as manager.

His career was cut short due to injury, but he is still remembered extremely fondly by the club's supporters and having a road named after him is testament to this.

Collins also went on to play 31 times for Scotland during his playing career and he managed the likes of Huddersfield Town, Barnsley and Hull City after retiring.
