This review is from: Lost in France: The Remarkable Life and Death of Leigh Richmond Roose, Football's First Playboy (Paperback)
This book gives an interesting account of the life of a footballer who is not known to many of us now but in his day he was the second most recognised sportsman after Jack Hobbs.
There is so much to Roose's life and the author has done a good job in researching the subject. Although particularly of interest to Welsh sports fans it maybe of interest to footballing historians generally as Roose was of the last generation of amateur footballers who played in the football league.
