5. Mervyn Day

AVWK/MERVYN DAY (KICKING)A solid and reliable goalkeeper, Eddie Gray brought Mervyn Day to the club in 1985. Remaining first choice goalkeeper as Billy Bremner took over the managers reigns and led Leeds United to the FA Cup semi-finals and Division 2 play-offs in 1987, Mervyn was still United’s number one three years later when Howard Wilkinson took The Whites back into the English top flight.

Since retiring from football, Day has continued to work in the game as both a coach and a scout. He was appointed Chief Scout for Leeds United in 2010, working alongside Gwyn Williams. Having left the position in 2012, Day now works in a similar role for Brighton & Hove Albion.
