Leeds United red cards

This page is a record of red card received by Leeds United players in competitive matches since 1920. Billy Poyntz became the first Leeds player to be sent off against Bury in February 1922.


Remarkably, the club went through a period of 36 years before receiving their next red card when Archie Gibson was given his marching orders against West Brom in 1958.

Gaetano Berardi has received a club record eight red cards for Leeds United, although his last against Millwall was rescinded by the Football Association. Officially, Gaetano Berardi holds the joint-club record for most sendings off alongside Alan Smith with seven dismissals each.


Other notable disciplinary records include John Sheridan (5 red cards) and Kalvin Phillips (4 red cards). Leeds have received seven red cards against Middlesbrough, the most against any single opponent in the club's history.

The only three Leeds players to have been sent off on their Leeds debuts are Olivier Dacourt (August 2000 v 1860 Munich), Gaetano Berardi (August 2014 v Accrington Stanley) and Giuseppe Bellusci (August 2014 v Watford).

Lewis Cook remains the last Leeds player to score and receive a red card in a single match in 1-1 draw at Doncaster in the League Cup in 2015.
