Peter Lorimer was a former Scottish footballer, best known for his time with Leeds United and Scotland during the late 1960s and early 1970s.
He was an attacking midfielder, generally regarded as having one of the hardest shots in football. From 1984 to 1985 he was club captain of Leeds and holds the record as the club’s youngest ever player and record goalscorer with 238 goals in all competitions.
Peter made his debut for Leeds when he 15-year-old in September 1962. Manchester United offered his parents £5,000 for him to join the club, but he insisted to sign for Leeds who had shown interest in him first.
He retired as a player in 1986 after a brief spell with Whitby and was later appointed to Leeds’ board as a director. He was named as the club’s first ambassador in 2013.
