Hi - does anyone know if Burton had any black players prior to Lindy Delapenha please? If not, I assume Lindy was Burton's first black player. And what a star he was! Any idea who was the first black player for Burton in the Football League? Cheers.
Lindy was the Albion's first black player, signed by Peter Taylor. A close second would have been Tony Parry, a local lad who became a legend at Hartlepool. Aaron Webster & Greg Pearson were the first black players in the football league. They may have been joined in that first season by Steve Kabba & Cleveland Taylor
