Leggat, Graham Apart from Johnny Haynes Graham Leggat was the best player to play for Fulham from the mid 50s until i stopped going in 1978 he had it all pace skill could use both feet and a good header of the ball cost 25,000pounds played for Fulham for appox 10 years and sold for the same amount the bargain of the age


Leggat, Graham i was Graham's dancing partner in a course which was compulsory for PEs at Jordanhill College.He was quiet and unassuming in spite of his obvious talents on the football field,He was a good tennis player too and imagine my feelings when i was drawn against him in a college table tennis tournament .Actually managed to win a few points It was about this time that he met his lovely wife Marilyn and i remember when they got engaged at the end of our training course.Sadly i too lost my husband almost a year ago He was also heavily involved in the sport of rowing and we travelled around Europe to various international competitions.i know something of what Marilyn and her family must be feeling.Two good men gone who made such a positive contribution to their respective sports
