Product Description

Details

The mid 1950s were a golden age for Bristol Rovers. At the heart of the team which came within a whisker of promotion to the First Division was their cultured right-back Harry Bamford respected throughout football for his skill and sportsmanship. His untimely death in 1958 shocked the whole city with thousands attending his funeral or gathering to watch the cortege. Based on previously unseen family papers, photographs and memorabilia, Harry Bamford: Bristol Rovers' First Gentleman of Football tells Harry's remarkable story for the first time, from his early years in St Philip's Marsh and his wartime service in the Far East, to his development under manager Bert Tann into one of the best full-backs never to win a full England international cap.
