On the pitch were many of those he had played with earlier in his career. But now, at the age of 30, when he should have been at his peak, injuries meant he was out of the game. Within three years, he would be dead after suffering from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, an aggressive form of cancer. It was a loss that devastated his family, and was keenly felt by team-mates and football fans across the country. James Leighton tells the extraordinary story of a boy whose footballing dreams all came true, but whose time at the top was cut short."@en ;
