RISE OF THE FOOTSOLDIER charts the rapid rise of Carlton Leach from feared football hooligan to him becoming a member of one of the countrys most notorious crime syndicates. Following his life over the course of three decades the film follows Leachs career from soccer thug through a stint as a doorman and his involvement in the early rave scene right through to his nadir as an integral part of a gang that ruled London and Essex during the late 80s and early 90s and would culminate in the infamous shotgun deaths of three of the firms members in Rettendon.
