It is with great sadness that Leeds United learns of the passing of former goalkeeper Glan Letheren at the age of 68.

Born in Llanelli, Wales, Letheren joined the Whites at Under-18s level in 1973 and stayed with the club until 1977.

He featured most memorably in the 1973 UEFA Cup second round against Hibernian at Easter Road, which saw United win the tie 5-4 on penalties after a 0-0 draw on aggregate over two-legs.

Representing Wales at U23s level, after leaving the Whites, he would have stints at Scunthorpe, Chesterfield, Blackpool, Oxford City, Scarborough and Bangor City, helping the latter reach the FA Trophy final in 1984.

In addition to football, Letheren was also a successful cricketer in the South Wales Cricket Association, playing mainly for Dafen Welfare CC, as a medium pace bowler and middle order batsman.

The thoughts of everyone at Leeds United are with Glan’s friends and family at this sad time.
