Paul Madeley began and ended his professional career with the Whites clocking up 724 appearances for the club. Known for his versatility and quality in a number of different positions, his influence at Elland Road spawned the phrase ‘The Eleven Pauls’ and earned him his ‘Rolls Royce’ nickname. He held his place as a first-team player for almost 20 years before retiring in 1980. Enjoy these photos, published courtesy of Getty and Varley Picture Agency, of a Leeds United legend.
