Sport For All - Leeds United players

Eirik Bakke (A Norwegian, he currently plays for SK Brann)

Olivier Dacourt (born in France he is currently without a club)

Alan Smith (Local lad now playing at Newcastle)

David Batty (Local lad, retired 2004)

Lucas Radabe (used to play for the Kaiser Chiefs - hence the name of our local band, named in his honour)

Today Leeds United fans find out whether the club get promotion, from league 1 to Championship. Once upon a time life was straight forward and the Leagues were numbered, now I believe, there are two divisions above 1 - Championship and Premier.

When the Sports Panel was planned and the book written (2002) the four players above were still playing for the team in the Premiership League. Since then fortunes have changed, the club was relegated from the Premiership in 2004 and the Championship in 2007.

Apologies to football fans if I've not been accurate - sifting through material as a non football fan is a bit of a nightmare.

Dorothy Wrench, who embroidered these footballers on printed cotton, is a football fan and totally approved of the choice of team members chosen by my then 13 year old son (2000) when she embroidered them. Wonderful socks and not a yellow boot in sight.

Good luck this afternoon Leeds.
