In December 1999, Peter Kitchen was voted by fans of both Doncaster Rovers and Leyton Orient as one of their greatest ever players. In more recent polls conducted by BBC’s Football Focus, FourFourTwo Magazine and other popular fanzines, he was voted as one of their best players—some of these polls taking place more than twenty years after he played for them, and is today still considered a cult hero by both sets of fans.

Born in Mexborough, South Yorkshire in 1952, Peter Kitchen attended Mexborough Grammar School and represented Yorkshire Senior Schools and England 'B' teams. He was spotted by Doncaster Rovers manager, Lawrie McMenamy, and signed up in June 1970, beating Leeds United to his signature. He made his league debut at Shrewsbury Town on 27 November 1970, scoring after just ninety seconds.

Between 1970 and 1985, Peter Kitchen went onto play for five different League clubs and scored a total of 210 senior goals from 545 appearances, even after his retirement from the professional game, he turned out for Corinthian Casuals Vets and knocked-in 280 goals from 228 appearances.

In this book about one of the greatest goal scorers from the lower divisions, author Neilson N Kaufman captures the life and times of Peter Kitchen's career. The book also features many previously unpublished photographs from Peter's own collection, and there is a full statistical record on one of the great players ever to put on a Doncaster Rovers and Leyton Orient shirt.

This book is a must for the bookshelves of any football fan with an interest on the men who shaped the beautiful game and in particular for the fans of the clubs for which Peter Kitchen played.
