For years, Adam Carroll-Smith has bragged about his Premier League '96 sticker album. The only sticker book he ever completed: a special childhood achievement which helped cement his love for football. After nearly two decades gathering dust in the loft, leafing through the album he discovers a small problem. In fact, there are half-a-dozen. The precious sticker album he remembered as complete, isn't. Six stickers are missing. Determined to re-complete his album, there’s only one thing Adam can do. He embarks on a spur-of-the-moment mission to track down and photograph the half-dozen players still missing from the album – hoping to finally complete his treasured collection. Six Stickers is a warm, uplifting story of life and football. In this epic tale of adventure and obsession, Adam gets lost in Belgium and even more lost in Kent, finds out more than he could ever want to know about Henry VIII, attempts to brush the moustache of a former Premier League legend, and eats chocolate biscuits with an ex-England winger, all in pursuit of his goal of collecting those last six stickers.
