Johanneson appeared for Leeds United in the 1965 FA Cup final and his daughter and granddaughters are presenting his runners’ up medal from that final as a key item to the National Football Museum.

Other items include a tankard, which was used in celebration after winning the First Division during the 1968/69 season, an FA Cup Final celebration banquet menu as well as fan mail sent to Albert by a Swindon Town fan after he impressed during a performance for Leeds against Swindon.

It’s fantastic to have Albert Johanneson’s family over from South Africa and a great honour for us to be receiving his FA Cup medal.

With the FA Cup Final happening this weekend, it’s a perfect opportunity to remember the achievements of Albert; I’m sure his family will do exactly that here at the Museum and at the final on Saturday.
