From Left Wing to D Wing

BySteve Glover

From the back streets of South London and the glamour of professional football, to a prison cell in Leicester, the life of Len Glover has been nothing if not eventful. Now, with a cast-list ranging from Princess Anne, Sammy Davis Jnr, Ava Gardner, and Reggie Kray, as well as sporting legends such as Pele and Franz Beckenbauer, he tells us his story. With self-awareness and honesty, the former soccer-star – at one time the most expensive winger in British footballing history – recalls the highs and the lows of his personal and public life. Shot throughout with quirky observations and humour, Len’s story chronicles not only his rise to fame and fall from grace but the social climate of his times. From the grim fifties and post-war austerity, through to the liberated sixties and troubled seventies, his life – domestic, professional, and illegal – is laid bare. Once described as the greatest uncapped winger in the world, he played against and alongside some of that world’s greatest players.
