The Song

The Ballad of Jack Leslie was written soon after I heard the story of Jack Leslie, who should have been England’s first black footballer in 1925. It lead to me setting up this campaign friend and fan Greg Foxsmith.

It’s out now on all digital platforms, so do stream and save it on Spotify, Apple Music etc., but you can also buy it and pay more if you like (all for the campaign!) here

Save it on Spotify…..

And on iTunes: https://music.apple.com/gb/album/the-ballad-of-jack-leslie-single/1519855350

All proceeds from the song will go to the campaign so please buy it, share it, request it on your favourite radio shows etc.

When Sky Sports filmed with us at Home Park they recorded the song. Naturally, they only used a clip and kindly gave me the footage, so here is the whole thing. My first stadium gig – Theatre of Greens looking glorious and only empty due to the pandemic…

Thanks
