Book Description

‘Fascinating, darkly humorous and horrific: not one for the feint hearted’ - FourFourTwo Magazine

The Games we Love to Hate

The local derby isn't just about football, it's about pride, and being able to hold your head up when you go to work on Monday morning, and knowing your lads are better than the other lot. Sadly, the opposite can also be true. The scum up the road can ruin your entire season in ninety gut-wrenching minutes. However, what happens on the pitch is only half the story…

From Britain's most authoritative writers on football hooliganism comes a fascinating examination of the passions and emotions that are an integral part of the local derby. Derby Days takes a frank but often humorous look at why these games are so important to supporters and examines the lengths to which many will go to put one over their local rivals.

Directed by Martin Kemp (The Krays, Eastenders) the film took the Best Feature award at the British Independent Film Festival as well as the Best Actor (Leo Gregory), Best Supporting Actor (Ricci Harnett) and Best Supporting Actress (Lorraine Stanley) awards.

    A third feature, the urban revenge thriller We Still Kill The Old Way starring Ian Ogilvy, James Cosmo, Steven Berkhoff and Danni Dyer, was released to critical acclaim in December 2014.
