Paul Agnew's 2002 biography is more than appropriately titled, for Sir Tom Finney can't be described in any other way than as a 'Football Legend'. Unfortunately, the football genius retired in 1960, just as I began watching the game.

Paul Agnew's 2002 biography is more than appropriately titled, for Sir Tom Finney can't be described in any other way than as a 'Football Legend'. Finney has now reached his 90th year and is still much revered in his home town of Preston. World War Two delayed the commencement of his professional playing career but Finney went on to play 473 games for Preston North End, scoring 210 goals

He recounts the death of Finney's mother when he was only four, his precocious talent in childhood kickabouts, his war-time experiences in Monty's Eighth Army and, of course, his starring role in the greatest-ever England forward line. Told with candour, humour and pathos, FOOTBALL LEGEND is the story of a true soccer immortal
