Description

Hugh Gallacher was a footballing prodigy born into a family of Irish immigrants in Bellshill in 1903. Standing just five foot five inches tall, he became one of the greatest stars ever to grace a football pitch. In Gallacher, award-winning author and journalist Roger Hutchinson traces the life of this footballing genius with a troubled soul, from his upbringing in the North Lanarkshire coalfields to his starring role with Newcastle and Scotland and one of central figures in the 'Wembley Wizards' who defeated England 5-1 in London to became, arguably, the best international team on the planet, all the way to his tragic suicide aged just fifty-four.
