Leigh Richmond Roose was a brilliant and controversial Edwardian goalkeeper - so good at his job that the FA had to change the rules of the game to keep him in check. His was the first name on the "Daily Mail's" teamsheet for their "World XI to challenge another planet at football". He was an inspirational figure for Stoke City, Sunderland and Wales (when they won their first Home Nations Championship), also playing for Aston Villa, Arsenal and Everton. Through dating music hall stars he became the first footballer to regularly appear in the newspaper gossip columns. Like millions of others he died serving his country in the Great War; unlike millions of others, nobody knew how or where...until now.
