When he was selected to play for England in 1925, Jack Leslie was the only black player in the Football League, and was renowned for his goalscoring prowess at Plymouth Argyle. He was, however, subsequently dropped due to the colour of his skin. This book tells of Leslie's remarkable life, his 137 goals in 400 appearances for The Pilgrims, and his time at West Ham United during his 60s where he cleaned the boots of World Cup winners like Bobby Moore! Published in 2023.
