‘I do live in Niagara Falls and we do have a light show quite often at the falls. So I approached the mayor with the idea.

‘He thought it was a great idea, he thought it was a fun idea. So it took a couple of days to organise it then he made it happen.’ 

Leeds have returned to the English top flight following 16 years away after being crowned Championship winners in July.
