First review of my book is in this months Backpass magazine which is available in WH Smith and various newsagents.
I couldn't put this book down. I gave up Sunday football a few years ago but this makes me want to put on my muddy boots again and go back to the banter and pulled hamstrings!
As a sunday league football player I found this a very good read. Very funny and entertaining, just like my team. Would recommend.
Its great to know I am not the only one, this bought back some great memories of hacking around muddy fields in winter whilst pretending we still have the skills and stamina we had at aged 20. An enjoyable read full of fun boys banter which is exactly why we put ourselves through one or two more seasons than our bodies want us too.
As a woman who doesn't watch a lot of football, I enjoyed this book way too much! I loved the humour, sarcasm and sporting banter as well as the capers and funny situations the characters kept getting wrapped up in. Forza Real Calcio!
We actually used to play against the infamous Real Calcio, we usually beat them;-) Book is amusing and managing a Sunday team I can relate to a lot of what the author goes through each week.
I have finally hung up my football boots, some people say it it should have happened years ago, and this is my first novel. I played Sunday morning football for around fourteen years during which time I have seen pretty much everything that can occur to a Sunday morning team both in the week leading up to the game and match day itself.
I hope you enjoy my novel and that fellow Sunday morning footballers can relate to the central narrative and characters in the book.
