Product Description

Review

''This book sets the record straight. Drawing on original materials from a variety of sources Peter Lupson has been able to bring these pioneers to life and to transport us back to the time in which they lived. Their remarkable contribution to our great national game is at last given the recognition it deserves. We have good reason to thank God for them.'' --John Motson

About the Author

Peter Lupson's academic credentials have been put to excellent use in the intensive research undertaken to compile this unique volume. He is the author of a number of successful school and university French and German text books, as well as Across the Park: Everton FC and Liverpool Common Ground (Trinity Mirror Sport Media, 2009). He is honorary life president of a semi-professional club in North Wales and the founder of a thriving church youth league on Merseyside. He currently combines part-time English teaching with writing.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must read for all football fans.

Religious or not, you will find out facts about your team that not even your official history was aware of.

Whats more, this book has led to some amazing events in the football world.

Swindon Town are changing their official badge after the research done for this book revealed that Swindon had the year they were formed wrong.

Tottenham Hotspurs founder is getting a proper gravestone now, after this book revealed he was buried un an unmarked paupers grave in Dover.

The research that must have gone into this book is incredible, and the new angle of going into the history via the founding churches has revealed new information that not even the clubs themselves knew.

Format: Paperback
If, like me, you're an Anglican and a football fan, this book is a must. And if you're only one of these, or even neither, I would still recommend it. The author has done some punctilious research and writes in a very readable way. Apart from anything else, it is an interesting insight into the social history of late nineteenth and early twentieth century England. I learnt a great deal from it.

The photographs are also first rate and add to the attraction of a very good book.

Format: Paperback
Amazing book and its a blessing we have authors like this that who keep history alive by researching it in depth. I will be certainley trying to contact the author for more information on his findings of Manchester City's Anna Connell.

If You dont Know Your Clubs History.................its a sin in my eyes.
