An excellent, easy to read and well researched book by that rarity, a Scouse rugby league supporter. Mike Brocken manages to bring to life the history of the club through numerous interviews with fans, ex-players and officials.

Brocken takes you through the early years of Northern Union in Liverpool and the various changes in the club's location and identity: Wigan Highfield, London Highfield, Liverpool Stanley, Liverpool City, Huyton and Runcorn finishing with the club's demise as Prescot Panthers.

We also get a wonderful feel for the camaraderie within the club, even though from the outside it was seen as a failure. The book also reminds us of great stalwarts at the club such as Jimmy Green in the thirties and more recently Geoff Fletcher.

It is well worth the money and Brocken's style makes it far more interesting than most club histories. Recommended to anyone who has any interest in sports books.

Fascinating and well-executed history of one of the backwaters of Rugby League.Brocken knows his stuff and his love for the minutiae of the subject carries the reader along. Well - researched and containing some illuminating interviews, this is highly recommended for the RL fan who likes to get beyond the big clubs and players and thier tales of glory and explore the true spirit of the game. Well played Mike!

A fabulous book to have for any followers of Rugby League and of the sports history. This book documents everything in detail encompassing all the difficulties and struggles in all the clubs venues and history. If you have been to any of the grounds whether in or around Liverpool or in other parts of the country, then the book will bring back memories. One to have in your collection of Rugby League books.

As a former supporter of Liverpool City (yes, we did actually exist) I found this brilliant. From the earliest days, through the time I watched the team at Knotty Ash and Alt Park, on to the inevitable demise. Sport no longer has a place for teams like City, but this book is well researched and well written..And I could even identify a grainy 15 year old self watching one of the games in a picture :)
