Memories of the masked Leeds United mascot

Who was the mascot in the mask? Was he one of George Graham’s new signings?

That was the question among Leeds United fans on a pre-season tour of Germany after the masked player took to the field ahead of the clash against Wolfsburg. This was August 1998 and back in the world’s greatest city the stakes were high with the launch of a new city centre casino on Westgate. The Leeds Show proved a success as did the Leeds Waterfront Festival. Enjoy these photos, plucked from the YEP archive, charting 31 days in the life of your city.
