This page holds a record of all the landmark stats by Leeds United goalkeepers until the present day.
Gary Sprake holds the club record for the most clean sheets by any Leeds United goalkeeper by registering 216 shutouts in 508 appearances across all competitions. Sprake also has the best ratio of goals conceded per game by any Leeds goalkeeper with 100+ appearances (0.88).


David Harvey ranks second for clean sheets with 152 separate shutouts and John Lukic makes up the top three with 150. 

Nigel Martyn kept a club record 82 Premier League clean sheets for Leeds between 1996 and 2002. Leeds recorded 23 clean sheets during the 1971/72 season which remains a club record in a single league season.


Illan Meslier became the youngest goalkeeper to keep 10 Premier League clean sheets at 21 years and 54 days old, beating Joe Hart by over 100 days to become the youngest player to achieve the feat in April 2021.

On 23 February 2021, Meslier became the first goalkeeper under the age of 21 to record 11 clean sheets in a single Premier League season with a 3-0 home win over Southampton.

A total of 15 goalkeepers have made 100+ competitive appearances for the club across all competitions.

The goals conceded stats refer specifically to the time each goalkeeper spent on the pitch representing the club, so each player's match records have been extensively researched and will hopefully provide one of the most accurate records of Leeds goalkeepers throughout the club's history.
