A solid Leeds-born defender, Martin Dickinson made his Leeds debut
shortly after his 17th birthday, but it was to be a further two years
(and with Leeds down in Division 2) before he won himself a regular
place in the side. He also made the occasional appearance in midfield,
but found himself on the fringes of Eddie Gray's side as Andy Linighan
and Neil Aspin took on the central defensive roles.
Dickinson moved on to West Brom in 1986, and then to Sheffield
United two years later but found his professional career ended as a
result of injuries sustained in a car crash.
Neale Sheldon says: Jimmy Adamson's blue eyed boy, the star of the
Leeds Youth team during the Adamson era. His favorite pastime was
breeding racing pigeons.
Ian Morrison says: Met him on hyoliday in Mallorca once - he bred
pigeons so he told me!

Leafy says: I played alongside this fella for the school and for
Leeds. "Dicko" was a hard lad who won a lot of possession in midfield
- he just didnt know what to do with it at his feet! Only kidding
Dicko. I remember him being "all arms" and he was all over you like a
rash in midfield. Hope you are well old lad. The last I heard of him
he was selling ladies underwear stolen from washing lines.....or
something like that!
Andy Aveyard says: I played in the same team as him at Leeds Celtic
and Yorkshire Amatures as a kid. Played up front with Johnny Paynter
and scored loads. Others in the team were Dave Dave Ripon, Stewart
Naylor, Paul Longdon etc.
