Episode 56 – Interview: Jim Leighton

Former Scotland, Aberdeen, Manchester United and Hibernian goalkeeper Jim Leighton chats to Daniel Gray. The two discuss Jim’s early years in Junior football, the influence of his father, Aberdeen glory days, World Cups with Scotland, hard times at Old Trafford and happy ones at Hibs. Plus, insight into the delights of goalkeeping from claiming catches to organising walls, and answers to the questions “Are keepers wired differently?” and “Is there really a goalkeepers’ union?” Jim also talks about his prostate cancer, and his determination to prevent other men from facing the same ordeal. An entertaining, honest listen with one of the gentlemen of the game.
