Bristol Rovers' most famous player is undoubtedly Geoff Bradford.
He holds the club record for goals scored (242 in 461 Football League appearances) and remains the only player to win a Full England International cap while with the club.
To research this book, the authors have been given access to an archive of information and original photographs from his family.
Bristol-born Geoff was a loyal one-club man having turned down the option of a transfer to First Division Liverpool.
He suffered two very severe career-threatening knee injuries and returned to play football for his club, who rewarded him with a Testimonial match at the end of his fifteenth season.
Besides representing England, he also won other honours for Rovers winning the Third Division (South) Championship in 1952/53 and also played in many representative matches for the English Football Association including a six-week tour to the West Indies in 1955.
There has never been a biography of Bradford, so this will be a welcome title for all dedicated Rovers fans.
