Wilbur Cush features at number 95 in our 100 Greatest Leeds players ever.
Born 1928, Wilbur was only 5'5" but with a heart as big as himself. Joined LUFC in 1957 from Glenavon, already a full Irish International, he captained United and was in the Irish 1958 World Cup Squad. He went on to amass 26 caps. He played 90 times, scoring 9 goals before leaving in 1960 for Portadown and then his former club Glenavon. Wilbur operated as an attacking midfielder but was so adept he even played centre-half, a rare feat considering his stature.
