Colin Leslie

Colin Leslie is Sports Editor at The Scotsman. He has been a print journalist for more than 20 years. He has also collaborated with Wales 1958 World Cup star Mel Charles and legendary goalkeeper John Burridge in producing their autobiographies. He lives and works in Edinburgh, the city of his birth, and has a son and daughter. As a wide-eyed 'Hibs Kid' on a stadium tour in the Eighties he came across Erich Schaedler pumping iron alone in the gym, but happy to take a break to sign autographs and chat with the delighted young supporters - this engaging character clearly made a lasting impression.
