Everton footballer and first vegan top flight player
Neil Robinson is a legend - not only did he play for one of the world's greatest football teams Everton FC in the 70's (sharing a dressing room with the holy trinity of Kendall, Ball and Harvey, quite possibly the greatest club midfield ever to grace the top flight), but also even more incredible is the fact that Neil was the first ever footballer in the top flight to adopt a vegan diet - which he did in 1980
Neil played and trained on a vegan diet for a number of years (having gone veggie aged 13) and was the first player to demonstrate that a vegan diet could be actually an aid to being a professional football player at the top level - he was always one of the fittest at all his clubs.
Neil is still vegan and passionate about the cause, and will be at VegfestUK Bristol on Sunday May 26th at 3pm as a guest of Tim Barford who will be presenting a talk on raw energy and hemp smoothies.
