Description

Iain Paterson's quest to uncover the story of his great uncle, once described as the best outside-left in Britain. It transpires that George Robertson was Motherwell's first international player, the man responsible for Sheffield Wednesday becoming known as the Owls… and the figure at the heart of a mysterious football riot in pre-WWI Dublin.
