Key Facts

Willie Leroy Rosenior – better known as Leroy Rosenior – is a former footballer, manager and now media commentator. Born to Sierra Leonean parents who settled in Britain in the early 1950s Leroy was raised in south London and his story cuts across three generations of the Rosenior family.

In It’s Only Banter Leroy holds up a unique and fascinating lens on English football as one of Britain’s first Black professional footballer turned manager. As a young, eager and idealistic player Leroy experienced the heady heights and painful lows of top flight football whilst playing at some of the country’s leading clubs including Fulham, Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United. In It’s Only Banter Leroy shares his captivating and long overdue journey:

I’ve celebrated scoring a goal at the Kop end at Anfield. I’ve stood in the centre circle at Upton Park while 25,000 West Ham fans have chanted my name. I’ve stood on the African west coast, white sand warming my toes as I looked out on the Atlantic Ocean”. Leroy Rosenior
