George Meek (1952-1960)

At a diminutive 5'3" was LUFC's smallest ever player, but made up for this by his boundless energy and elusiveness. A real box of tricks, his ball skills mocked many a full back. Born 1934, he joined LUFC from Hamilton Academical in 1952, played 199 games, scoring 19 goals. His pinpoint crosses led to many a John Charles headed goal.Member of the 1956 Promotion team he left for Leicester in 1960 and later Walsall.

Born 1956, the burly Geordie Striker joined Burnley in 1973, where he won England under 23 and Youth caps, before being signed by LUFC in 1976. Injuries restricted him to only 4 appearances in his first season. He proved a fearsome spearhead as he led the goalscorers with 20, in his second season. After 102 games and 36 goals, he was sold to Vancouver Whitecaps in 1980. He later joined Arsenal but never played, and also saw service with Middlesborough, Peterborough, Wolves and Whitby Town.

John McCole (1959-1961)

John returned to Bradford in 1962 but broke his leg while playing for Rotherham, which hindered his later career. A very under-rated striker, his 22 goals in 1959-60 could not save LUFC from relegation from the top flight.

Scott Sellars (1983-1986, 1992-1993)

Born Sheffield 1965, he turned professional with LUFC in 1983 and soon became one of a number of talented youngsters encouraged to play open football by Manager Eddie Gray, but struggled with the physical aspects of the game. He asked for a transfer and joined Blackburn Rovers in 1986, where he won a Full Members Cup medal, was capped at England under 23 level and won promotion with them before leaving to rejoin LUFC in 1992. He always struggled with injuries and it came as no surprise when he left for Newcastle and later joined Bolton Wanderers.

Davie Cochrane (1937-1950)

Born Portadown in 1920, the 5'4" brilliantly gifted Right Winger was a star from an early age and LUFC got a bargain when they bought him from his home town in 1937. LUFC's first ever winger to be capped, at 18, his 12 caps (and LUFC career) were severely restricted by the War. He spent the war years playing in Ireland and returned to star for LUFC (including the 1949-50 FA Cup run) until he retired in 1950.

Robert Molenaar (1997-2000)

Nicknamed the "The Terminator" (which he apparently dislikes), he was bought in 1997 by George Graham to stabilise the Leeds defence, which he succeeded in doing. He looked less certain the next season and despite a goal against Blackburn he was pulled off and not seen much again that season. In 1998-99 he replaced Wetherall as first choice centre back, unfortunately a late challenge by Anelka curtailed his season with ligament damage. He moved to Bradford in 2000 to help with their relegation battle and despite doing enough to be rewarded with a longer contract he couldn't help them from being relegated.

Paul Hart (1978-1983)

Born Manchester 1953, he was a commanding stopper and was bought to replace Gordon McQueen in 1978. He was often tipped for England honours but they never materialised. He made 223 appearances scoring 20 goals before leaving for Nottingham Forest in 1983. He later appeared for Sheffield Wednesday, Birmingham City and Notts County and some managerial and coaching posts before he returned to Elland Road to take charge of the successful youth programme, which peaked with the defeat of the all-star Man United in the two legged final of the FA Youth Cup.

James Milner (2002-2004)

Born Leeds 1986, the 16 year old midfielder and life long Leeds fan impressed with the reserves and was handed a first team sub appearance against West Ham. He later went on to become the youngest ever scorer in the Premiership with a goal at Sunderland. When Peter Reid took over he used Milner more as a substitute and it was only when Eddie Gray became manager that he was rewarded with a regular first team place. After relegation in 2004 he was sold to Newcastle to help Leeds in their time of financial difficulties.

Brian Deane (1993-1997, 2004-2005)

Born Leeds in 1968, Deano starred with the Leeds City Boys but after playing with the Leeds Youth team in 1984, he was allowed to join Doncaster in 1985 where his powerful displays saw him snapped up by Sheffield United. A target-man Striker, he became a prolific scorer and soon won 3 full England caps. It took a massive 2.7m to gain a return to his birthplace. Although voted Supporters Player of the year in 1994-95, he failed to live up to his goalscoring reputation but had a fine spell on the left-side of the attack with Tony Yeboah, which ensured European qualification. Allowed to leave in 1997 he returned for the 2004-05 season.

As Captain, he led by example and was one of the motivators behind the 1949-50 Cup run. After clashing with Raich Carter over his unnecessary berating of Keeper Jack Scott, Tommy left for his beloved West Country in 1955 and took Bristol City to the Third Division South Championship.
