Nat Lofthouse: A Life In Photos, Ciggies And Wanderers

by | 17th, January 2011

NAT Lofthouse RIP. This was your life in photos. You were the former Bevin Boy who played for Bolton Wanderers when they were winners (signing fee: £10 on the day after the second world war broke out). You played for England when they were the greatest. You played 33 times for England, scoring 30 goals. You became “The Lion of Vienna” as England defeated Austria 2-3 in a cauldron of noise and violence.

A footballer’s career has ups and downs – but when they die, it’s the glory that endures…

Buy the book.
