Len Goodson was a Doncaster Rovers star in the early 1900s. When the team joined the Football League in the 1901-02 season, Len scored their first ever goals in that league. His sale to Middlesborough for a substantial sum helped to pay for a new stand at the team’s Intake Ground. Outside of football, Len worked as a labourer. Len did not marry and died aged only 41 in 1922. Since his death, he has laid in an unmarked family grave in Hyde Park Cemetery, Doncaster.
We want to mark his grave and we need to raise £4000 to make this a reality. Can you help?
