Jack Leslie Campaign- an update

Three years ago Matt Tiller and I set up the Jack Leslie Campaign, and I posted my first blog about in May 2020 (see here)

A lot has happened since then!

1 We unveiled a statue! https://jackleslie.co.uk/news/the-unveiling/

2 We have told Jack’s story in schools, to companies and at football clubs https://jackleslie.co.uk/news/jack-leslie-campaign-reaches-out-to-other-efl-league-one-clubs/

3 Jack Leslie has been inducted into the National Football Museum Hall of Fame at a presentation at West Ham’s stadium

4 Jack Leslie has been posthumously awarded an honorary England cap (presented to his granddaughters at a full England International at Wembley) 

Future plans?

We will continue our outreach work, using Jack’s story to combat racism, challenge discrimination and fight prejudice. Find out more from the campaign website (and hit ”subscribe” for updates) or follow on social media (eg twitter @jacklesliecamp)
