If so, please let us know and we will be happy to share them with the world!
Peter used to be my reserve team coach at Leeds United in the 80s. A very good coach but more importantly an absolute fantastic person. I can confidently say that Peter was liked by everyone at the club, a real Leeds United man who deserves plenty of accolades. Peter always had a smile on his face and would offer you support on and off the field. It’s been a few years now - but Peter to me is one of the most outstanding men in football. I remember him turning 50 years old still trying to join in and hold his own against professional footballers half his age. Great guy and I wish him and his family my best wishes
Fortunately for me Peter is my grandad , I remember many times as child been lucky enough to live under the same roof as some of Leeds United finest. My grandad gave his and my grandmaâ€™s entire life to football (Leeds United).
I remember staying with him regularly up at Wetherby training ground and watched my grandad train some of what were to become legends at Leeds United. I also remember staying at his home at Roundy where all the fresh new players would stay while in the first stages of the academy. Boy was I lucky to have the best grandad in the world and to have lived with / met some of the greatest players to play for Leeds throughout the years. Sadly as the years have gone on my grandad and grandmaâ€™s memories have faded due to dementia / old age but out of all the things a person with dementia would forget (my gran and grandad have not forgot Leeds United).
