RIP Byron Stevenson

Former Leeds United and Wales defender Byron Stevenson has passed away aged 50, having lost his fight against throat cancer.

The Llanelli born player made juts 15 appearances for his country, having had his international career cut short after breaking the cheekbone of an opponent player, Buyak Mustafa. Whilst the incident cut short his time in the red shirt of Wales, he did make 100 appearances in a Leeds United shirt between 1973 and 1982, retiring at the age of 29 before going on to later work with local side Garforth Town.

Vital Leeds would like to offer it’s condolences on the behalf of all members to Byron's family and friends.
