RIP Paul Madeley

Post by Mr Red »

A statement from Paul Madeley's family.



“Paul Madeley passed away peacefully today (23 July 2018) surrounded by his family in Leeds.

“Paul was a much-loved husband, father and brother and the family are extremely proud of his achievements in life and on the field for Leeds United and England.

“He was born in Beeston, a stones-throw from Elland Road, and only ever played and supported Leeds United.

“The late Don Revie christened him his ‘Rolls Royce’ and to us he was just that - a class act as a husband and a father who always had time for everyone he met.

“Paul’s wife Ann and sons Jason and Nick would like to thank everyone for their support and well wishes.

"At this difficult time, we ask for privacy as we grieve a great loss.”

I agree with Dons assessment on the way Paul played - RIP Paul - you came across as all class.

Paul was a great player, a great man, and always made time for young supporters and the Leeds Youth team players. RIP
The older I get the better I was.
