Leeds United 1947-48 No.0060
For the season 1947-48 confidence at Elland Road was at an all time low, Willis Edwards one of United's most loyal servants took the reigns after the demotion of Billy Hampson but the Leeds stalwart just didn't have the experience for the role. Form for that season marginally improved with some impressive performances. At home a 5-0 win over Plymouth Argyle in early September improved spirits at the Elland Road camp but United would win only once in their next seven games. The manager worked hard with his team and United avoided the drop with Leeds finishing in a lowly 18th place.

Back Row: Jack Smith, Ken Willingham, Jim Milburn, Jim Twomey, Ken Gadsby, Dennis Kirby, Bob Roxburgh (Trainer).
Front Row: Dennis Grainger, Aubrey Powell, Albert Wakefield, John Short, Billy Heaton, Tony Ingham.
