Leigh settles old scores

A FORMER PE teacher and football scout from Belper has penned a fictional book about the murky underworld of the world’s favourite game.

Leigh Dallas Rose, who was a coach and scout for clubs such as Southampton, Reading and Derby County, has wrote Old Scores.

It’s a tale about Paul Breakwell and his rise from a Sunday park player to on-the-rise local club Barrowcliffe.

A spokesman said: “The ins and outs of top-flight football don’t come much more exciting than this.”
