Colin Newton, who is her nephew, told the Yorkshire Evening Post that was the "stalwart of the family and the whole community."

He added: "She'll do anything for anyone. We've all grown up thinking of Leeds United almost as part of the family."

After 14 matches, Leeds are at the top of the EFL Championship and are level on points with second-placed Middlesbrough and third-placed Sheffield United.
