Les Bradd wrote himself into football history in January 1977 when he scored the first of two goals at Millwall. It helped earn the world’s oldest league club three points and took Bradd’s tally to a club record 115 – a total unlikely ever to be beaten.
He finished his Notts County career on 136 League and Cup goals. Fifty years on from arriving at Meadow Lane for £1,000 he talks candidly about relationships with former manager Jimmy Sirrel, captain Don Masson and fellow striker Tony Hateley - all key men in County’s rise during the Seventies.

During spells with Stockport County and Wigan Athletic he won more accolades as he was voted Player of the Year at both clubs. In 2015 he received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Nottingham Sports Awards.
