At age 5 I had a choice; go with my Uncle to the Shay Stadium or with Grandad to Elland Road. Leeds had better pies in the 70's.....

The first 'proper' football match I ever saw was a pre-season friendly, Doncaster Rovers v Leeds United.

I went with my grandad who was a Rovers' regular but he'd told me all about leeds and everybody knew they were the best team in the country back then. I was disappointed that Billy Bremner and a lot of the other first teamers weren't playing but I remember Mick Bates and Terry Yorath, and Paul Reaney, who was perhaps the biggest star on show that night. to me, he seemed like a giant striding down the pitch.

There has only ever been one team for me since that night.
