'''Ivan Gordon Sharpe''' (15 June 1889 – 9 February 1968) was an English amateur association football player. Although an amateur himself, he played for several professional clubs, including Watford F.C., Derby County F.C. — with whom he won the Football League First Division in 1911–12 and later Leeds United. He represented the England national amateur football team, and also the Great Britain national football team, with whom he won an Olympic gold medal at the 1912 Summer Olympics in Sweden. He is also one of very few players to have played for both Leeds City F.C. (65 appearances and 17 goals) and Leeds United (1 appearance 0 goals). He was left winger with great skills. He was very fast without and with the ball, very agile and also good passing to his team mate. After retirement he enjoyed a long career as a sports journalist, becoming president of the Football Writers Association. He served as editor of the Athletic News Football Annual and also of the Athletic News Cricket Annual. In 1936 he was selected by the BBC to be one of two journalists (the other being Mr F N S Creek) who for the first time provided live commentary on the FA Cup Final. He continued to contribute a hard-hitting article to the Wolverhampton Wanderers match day programme for many years right up to his death, and he also produced a volume of memoirs "40 Years in Football" in 1954.
