Born in 1961, Justin Fashanu was brought up by foster parents and by the children’s charity Barnardos. At 14 he signed schoolboy forms with Norwich City FC, where he progressed through the ranks and played for the first team when he was in his late teens. His 1980 volley against Liverpool was the goal of the season and still claims its place in football’s all time great moments. The following year, he was signed by Brian Clough and joined Nottingham Forest for one million pounds. He would go on to find fame and notoriety as the first openly gay black million pound footballer. Sadly, he would end his own life at the age of 37.
