This song 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 The Jack Leslie Campaign with my friend and fan Greg Foxsmith. We want to build a statue of Jack and tell his story which has, for many terrible reasons, become very timely.
We are crowdfunding and doing great but need your help to hit our £100K target so please do check it out and donate if you can.
All proceeds from the song will go to the campaign so please buy it, share it, request it on your favourite radio shows etc…. !
The Ballad of Jack Leslie is out now on all digital platforms but you can buy it and pay more if you like (all for the campaign!) here…
Thanks for listening.
