Jimmy Greaves remembered in matchday programme

A Chelsea youth product, Greaves became the youngest player ever to reach 100 league goals during his time at Stamford Bridge, and more importantly made a generation of young football fans dream with his thrilling attacking play. He went on to become the greatest goalscorer in the history of English league football and a hero to fans.

As well as a special tribute cover, there is a celebration of Greaves’ sparkling career with a pictorial feature covering the magical moments that punctuated a memorable life, while club historian Rick Glanvill tells the story of his development as a young Blues star in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

The programme also speaks to a present-day graduate from the Chelsea Academy, Trevoh Chalobah, about a month he will never forget.

‘My dream has always been to play for Chelsea, to get my chance in the team, and the journey from where I started to where I am now has just been an unbelievable one,’ he says in an exclusive interview.
