Peter Lorimer: Leeds and Scotland Hero, 1st Ed, Phil Rostron, EPL, Soccer United
They call him "Lash", after the velocity at which he was officially recorded as the hottest shot in football. Peter Lorimer's blistering 90mph strike left many a goalkeeper clutching thin air as he waltzed into the record books as a permanent member of the fantastic Leeds United team which, under the managership of Don Revie from 1961-74, carried all before them. In September 1962, he made his debut aged 15 years and 289 days. His first spell with the club lasted until 1979 and he then returned for a second period between 1983 and '86. He remains the only Leeds player to have scored over 200 goals, and won 21 caps for Scotland. The highlight of his international career was the 1974 World Cup in West Germany, although his country was eliminated despite having not lost a single game. Travelling throughout Europe with Leeds at the height of their success, Lorimer witnessed bribery and corruption as well as glory and failure.
