Profile:
Aberdeen born Leggat developed in to one of the all time greats when his Pittodrie career flourished during the 50's. In the early stages, Leggat was a vital cog in the Dons machine that swept to the League championship in 1955. Many observers were of the opinion that Leggat was the complete player without a weakness. Capped for Scotland before his move to Fulham on 16th August 1958 for a paltry 15,000 fee, Leggat moved to Canada and was involved in the development of the game there, and made a big name for himself in sports broadcasting.
