Beyond The Boot Camps : Football, Inside and Out
From selling fruit and veg out of his car boot after training, to life under lower division eccentrics such as John Beck and Barry Fry, Tales From the Boot Camps was Steve Claridge's hugely entertaining and successful autobiography of life outside the Premiership. Published ten years ago it is still in print. Beyond the Boot Camps promises more of the same: the last decade has seen Steve Claridge finally take leave of the Football League (after turning out for half a dozen more clubs), dabble disastrously with management at Weymouth and Millwall, continue to fight his gambling addiction and become a respected Radio 5, Sky and Guardian pundit. There's a whole ten years' worth of frank and hilarious anecdotes to fit into this new volume.
