Marching On Together with Jack Charlton

Gerry Cranham


Footballing legend Jack Charlton passed away last week aged 85, leaving behind memories of a glittering playing career for both England, with whom he won the World Cup in 1966, and Leeds United. He played for United 773 times – a club record – and enjoyed two spells in the top flight, the latter of which saw Leeds become a dominant domestic force under manager Don Revie. A tough-tackling centre-back, Charlton marshalled their defence as Leeds won the league cup in 1968, the league title in 1969 and the FA Cup in 1972. He and his team-mates also recorded the now famous “Leeds, Leeds, Leeds” song in the lead up to the ’72 cup final. Originally a B-side, the anthem is still proudly sung at Elland Road as the club march closer and closer to a return to the Premier League.

Marching on together
We’re gonna see you win
We are so proud
We shout it out loud
We love you Leeds! Leeds! Leeds!
