RIP Lawrie Leslie

A nutter of a keeper who I saw get his leg broken against Bolton, his head split open by Bobby Tambling against Chelsea and broken fingers against Arsenal. In the Arsenal game he returned with his hand strapped up and played on the wing.
He was only with us a couple of years but was a great and fearless keeper.


  • One of my early heroes.
    Fearless doesn’t come close,he was absolutely nerveless.
    I remember those games thornbury,I swear you cold hear the crack when he broke his leg against Bolton.
    Another hero gone.
    RIP Lawrie.
