Many thanks to all those who entered our Club's Christmas competition. We had over 100 entries!
The competition question was 'Who was Leeds United's first black player?'. The correct answer was Gerry Francis who was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in December 1933. He signed a professional contract in July 1957 and made his debut for Leeds United in November 1957 against Birmingham City.
Gerry Francis - debut November 1957
Albert Johanneson - debut April 1961
