Born in 1874 he worked as a miner when he was 12 before his breathtaking soccer skills brought him to the notice of English clubs.

Thereafter he dominated football for three decades. A rebel and reformer, his 30 year career was dogged by problems on and off the field, while his dazzling wing-play and spectacular goals inspired both Manchester clubs, City and United, to their first Cup and League successes. With a record of 48 Welsh caps, Billy Meredith was dubbed the Wizard and was founder of the Players Union. He was also suspended for alleged bribery, led the first players strike in 1909, and finished his career at 50 years of age playing in a FA Cup semifinal.

This classic football biography stands as a vivid testament to this complex, thrill ing footballer.
