This has really kicked on today. Almost 30K raised of 100K with press articles and items on national radio....

Leslie was one half of the Argyle pre war "All Black Wing" alongside Scot Sammy Black, and sadly was selected for England honours before being dropped as the selectors discovered his race.

He has been honoured by the club who named the new boardroom at Home Park after him but in the current climate this is a positive campaign aimed at bringing football together behind a man who should have been so much more well known than he was.
