Len Shackleton never won a thing in his seventeen-year career - not a League Championship medal, not an FA Cup medal, not even a medal for topping the old Second Division. Not only that, but 'Shack' collected only five England caps. His legion of admirers regard that as an insult to the outstanding ability of this unusual footballer, but many will have to take their word for it because little or no film exists of the great man in action. Yet, half a century after he stopped playing, Len Shackleton remains a legend, particularly in Bradford, Newcastle and Sunderland where fans preserve precious memories of his magical ball control and outrageous showmanship. They insist he would have been a sensation in today's game. But would he? That is one of the intriguing questions Colin Malam attempts to answer in this fascinating biography. Was The Clown Prince more Prince than Clown?
