Laurie Cunningham is recognised as the first black player to professionally represent England at any level. One of England’s greats, Real Madrid paid a club record fee for his signing, and he also played for teams such as Manchester United, Leicester City & Marseille. Laurie was a self-styled London soul boy; he loved dancing and music, and was a regular in an iconic scene of London’s history. This script was written by Dermot Kavanagh, the author of Different Class: Football, Fashion & Funk – The Story of Laurie Cunningham.
