Synopsis

With 125 years of competitive action behind them, it's no surprise that Leicester City can fully relate to many of football's highs and lows. From the early days, when they were known as the Fosse, right up to the modern era which saw the club slip unceremoniously into the third tier in 2008, only to bounce straight back as champions twelve months later, City has been the heartbeat of a community that appreciates hard work and good football.

Generations of supporters have returned home and to their work places enthusing about some of the great players that have represented 'The Foxes' and have gone on to become household names. Inside 'The Legends of Leicester City' you'll read about some of these all-time favourites - recall names such as goalscoring heroes Arthur Rowley, Arthur Chandler, Gary Lineker and Steve Claridge, those world-acclaimed 'keepers Gordon Banks and Peter Shilton, loyal stalwarts like Graham Cross and Steve Walsh, plus successful managers Peter Hodge, Matt Gillies and Martin O'Neill - as well as 'Mr Leicester City' himself Alan Birchenall. Read about the agonies of the club's four FA Cup Final defeats, as well as happier Wembley times in the shape of League Cup and Play-Off Final success.

These, plus many more of the great personalities and players that have gone to shape Leicester City's first 125 years have their story told in this beautifully researched tribute. From a glorious past at their former home at Filbert Street to a bright and prosperous future at the state-of-the-art Walkers Stadium, the Foxes story is sure to appeal to supporters of all ages.
