About us

Our collection

I am a lifelong Leeds United fan first walking up the steps at Elland Road with my Dad in 1978.

I was hooked.  The Diamond Floodlights, the green, green grass, the all white kit, the ATMOSPHERE and The Gelderd End.  I stood on the Lowfields in those days, mesmerised by the kit, the corner flags, the players, my heroes in white.  Eddie Gray, Brian Flynn, Tony Currie.  Halcyon Days.

As I grew older, I took my place on the Kop and that is where I have been ever since. 

I have always been obsessed with Leeds shirts and memorabilia.  My collection starting around 30 years ago with my first autograph sheet, which as been followed over the years by every piece of LUFC memorabilia known to man.

I hope you enjoy looking at it!!
