The film was launched in Leeds tonight at Everyman Cinema at the Trinity Shopping Centre.

Film star Vinnie Jones, speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, spoke about how good it was to be involved in the project.

He said: "Everybody lent themselves to it. We're all proud of what we did at that time and it's nice that [the film] has happened this far forward.

"With the lads that we had and then they went on to win the league. It was a good four or five years for the club."

Asked what he thinks Leeds United's promotion chances are this season, he said: "There's always twists and turns. I still think there's going to be more twists and turns. Nothing's sorted out yet, by a long way. Two or three games is a lot in the Championship run-in."
