FULHAM STRIKERS

The book details one hundred ‘number 9s’, centre forwards and principal goalscorers from the Second World War until the end of last season – ‘From Beddy to Berbatov’. For all of the principal seventy-five players, it details their youth career, careers at previous clubs, concentrating obviously on their time at Craven Cottage. Also included are their playing careers after leaving Fulham including non-league and, if known, what they did after leaving the game. Their history includes clubs abroad and their international careers.

Their Fulham period details highlights, hat-tricks and special matches and anecdotal material, and also analyses what kind of player he was, his attributes and style. Each player has playing statistics and is illustrated with Ken Coton/Ashwater pictures augmented by some newspaper and private images.

Our list of principal strikers includes all those you’d expect to find, such as Maurice Cook, Vic Halom, Gordon Davies, Leroy Rosenior, Mike Conroy, Geoff Horsfield, Barry Hayles and Brian McBride, and some names that may be less familiar, such as Allan Jones, Dave Metchick, George Johnston, Dale Tempest and Tony Thorpe. In between is a whole host of players from Bedford Jezzard to Bobby Zamora, from Jackie Henderson to Steve Marlet.
