Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Leonard Arthur Goulden was an English footballer. His son Roy was also a footballer. Born in Hackney, London, Goulden began his career with Chelmsford City, before moving to Leyton and then West Ham United in 1933. He remained with the Hammers for six years, making over 250 appearances and scoring 55 goals from his inside forward position. He was an ever-present, along with Joe Cockroft, during the 1936-37 season. Goulden also won 14 England caps during his time at Upton Park. At a match against Germany in 1938, he scored with a shot that reportedly ripped the net from the crossbar; he is then reported to have shouted, "Let 'em salute that one!" His West Ham career was interrupted when World War II started and he never played another competitive match for the club, though he did win the Football League War Cup with them in 1940.show more
