"Arthur Wharton is hardly a household name, but perhaps he should be... his sporting achievements elevate him way beyond many far better known and celebrated figures. He was a remarkable athlete who led a remarkable life through one of the most turbulent periods in British history."
Irvine Welsh (Author of Trainspotting).

"...Writen with a passion and erudition... I hope this book is read by anyone who is interested in the history of sport and football in particular..."
