Product description

It's not about the glory of winning trophies but about being a football fan. It's capturing both the joy and suffering that comes from being a Bee or a Valiant, knowing that - season after season - there will be little chance of a winning a championship, promotion or cup success. It's not knowing whether your non-league club will continue in existence. It's becoming a political agitator trying to save your club. There are trips down memory lane and journeys from childhood to adulthood and the impact football has on such a transition. From Dunstable to Montrose - and many points between - this is a book that is truly of the fans, for the fans and, most importantly, by the fans. A different slant on football writing, addressing the game through the eyes of ordinary football supporters from all walks of life, young and old.
