Leeds United Club History

Peter Haddock

1986-91 Midfielder/Defender

Born:  Newcastle upon Tyne, December 9, 1961 
Debut:  Blackburn Rovers (away), Division Two, August 23, 1986
Games:  130 (+17 subs)
Goals:  1

Haddock played for his hometown club before joining Leeds.  Unflappable and a fine reader of the game, but versatility was Haddock’s greatest strength.  Player Of The Year in 1987/88, his best campaign though was alongside Chris Fairclough at centre-half in 1989/90 when Leeds clinched promotion as Division Two champions.  Injury free that season, Haddock missed just six matches.  Otherwise injuries meant he missed almost two seasons and his career ended following a horrific knee injury against Man United in the 1991 League Cup semi-final.  Haddock had had his chips.

Strange but true: Haddock was one of three left-backs at the club to suffer serious injury during 1990/91.
