Leeds United 1982-83 No.0136

Submitted: 03/16/11 (Edited 03/16/11)
Description: For the season 1982-83 Leeds United found themselves back in the Second Division and it was another hero from the Revie era Eddie Gray that took up the reigns as player-manager of United after the dismissal of Allan Clarke. Gray had an unenviable task ahead, crowds were down at Elland Road to an all time low and the club reported a debt of 1.5M pounds. Gray's side just about held their own in the League without ever threatening while the side exited early in both domestic Cup competetion's. After a thrilling 4-2 win away against Newcastle United in the first stage of the League Cup, where Leeds came back from 0-2 down, United sadly lost the next round at home to Huddersfield Town 1-0. In the FA Cup and Leeds eventually lost a marathon 4th Round tie against Arsenal at Highbury after two replay's. United finished eighth in Division Two on 60 points.

Back Row Mark Gavin, Martin Dickinson, Neil Aspin, John Lukic, Paul Hart, David Harvey, Gary Hamson, John Donnelly, Kevin Hird.
Front Row Gwyn Thomas, Aidan Butterworth, John Sheridan, Andy Ritchie, Eddie Gray (Player-Manager), Tommy Wright, Arthur Graham, Frank Gray.
