Tommy Johnston was voted Leyton Orient's greatest ever player by fans of the club in a poll to mark the Millennium, gaining 20 per cent of all votes cast.  Born in Loanhead, Tommy holds the club record for the most goals scored in a single season, and the most goals scored on aggregate throughout his career.  During his long career, Tommy played in every class of football, from juvenile football in Scotland with Loanhead Mayflower and Peebles Rovers, to professional with one Scottish League club (Kilmarnock), one Welsh club (Newport County) and seven English clubs: Darlington, Oldham Athletic, Norwich City, Leyton Orient (twice), Blackburn Rovers and Gillingham.

In this new book about his life and times as a footballer, Neilson Kaufman and Alan Ravenhill chart the ups and downs of Tommy Johnston's career, telling his story for the legions of fans up and down the country who remember his special talents.  The text is embellished with many previously unpublished photographs from the Johnston family archive, and there are full statistical records to give a complete picture of the career of one of the greatest players ever to pull on a Leyton Orient shirt. The book is an essential addition to the bookshelves of any fan with an interest in the men who shaped the history of our national game, and is sure to have wide appeal.
