A football fan is calling for a blue plaque to be unveiled in memory of Albert Johanneson, one of the first black Leeds United players who excelled in the 1960s.

Paul Eubanks, a former teacher, is campaigning for a plaque to be put up and has contacted Leeds Civic Trust calling for the honour to remember him.

Mr Eubanks said: “Last year 2011 was the 50th anniversary of when Albert came to play for Leeds, originally from South Africa.
