Black and Blue



Sometimes you meet people in your life and all you can do is stop and listen, Paul Cannoville is one of those people.

Paul was Chelsea FC’s first ever black player who made his debut for them in 1984. Having risen through non-league this was a rags to riches story, unfortunately this wasn’t the kindest of periods of British football and Paul had to suffer through some truly horrendous racism, but to to strength he came through and let his football do the talking.

Black And Blue.

Thanks Pickles magazine for this great story.
