This book will delight Yorkshire soccer enthusiasts of all ages. It spans a century of football history in the county, recalling some of the giants who have thrilled crowds at every ground from Bramhall Lane to Bootham Crescent and from Ayresome Park to Valley Parade. It features the famous team-makers from Herbert Chapman to Don Revie; great captains from "Nudger" Needham to Billy Bremner; idols like Raich Carter, Wilf Mannion, Jimmy Baxter and Johnny Giles; and goalgetters from George Camsell to John Charles, Kevin Hector to Bobby Campbell. Famous footballing brothers like the McLeans and the Keetleys, "boy wonders" like Albert Gelhard and Alick Jeffrey; and unique characters like the 20 stone Willie Foulke: these and many others have a place in a book which will satisfy the older supporter's thirst for nostalgia while pleasing the young fan keen to read about favourites of the modern era.
