Description - The Football Hall of Fame by Robert Galvin
From Dixie Dean, Stanley Matthews and Billy Wright, to Paul Gascoigne, Gary Lineker and David Beckham, Britain has produced a wealth of great football players that have won domestic, European and global trophies. In association with the National Football Museum, a panel of footballing legends, including Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Geoff Hurst, have selected the players for the official FA Hall Of Fame at the National Football Museum. This is the official illustrated book, highlighting the museum's work, and detailing the profile of each player, discussing career achievements, their clubs, key matches and a wealth of statistics to provide the complete picture for all fans. The National Football Museum collects, preserves and interprets this unique heritage for the public benefit. The museum has a long-term mission, a responsibility to both the present and future generations. Football is the people's game and the museum has a key role to play in social inclusion, widening the audiences for museums and their services. The National Football Museum opened to the public in February 2001. The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) provided GBP9.3 million of the total initial funding of GBP15 million required to create the Museum.
