About the Authors
Andrew Dalton an avid Leeds United fan and author of the official centenary book, attended his first match in 1992. Andrew’s thirst for statistics began in 1993 when he appeared on Radio Leeds answering questions on the Whites.
Heidi Haigh a passionate fan and author of the series of books "Follow Me and Leeds United" attended her first match in 1967. Heidi, a season ticket holder, had seven years of not missing a match home or away in both the seventies and eighties.
Andrew and Heidi met whilst watching the Whites at Elland Road and share the same passion for following their team. Although Heidi has been going to matches many more years than Andrew, his statistical knowledge is superior. A great combination.
