Description

Writer Ian Stafford's quest to play alongside or against some of Britain's top sporting stars reveals not only the personalities of those he came up against, but also what it is about them that makes them the top in their field. Fulfilling his dreams, Stafford joined Everton on their pre-season training trip abroad before coming on as a sub in a testimonial game at Goodison Park, wrestled with Pat Roach, played for Yorkshire on their pre-season cricket tour of South Africa, played for Wigan Warriors in the traditional Boxing Day rugby league derby against St Helens, and for Leicester in rugby union (almost scoring a try in Ireland), he raced against Eddie Irvine and Johnny Herbert and sprinted against some of the world's top athletes in Birmingham.
