"This take on the game sits alongside the very best football fiction out there. A difficult genre to crack, this is a nicely paced and often hilarious read and it's fair to say, we thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish." 'In Bed With Maradona' website
"It is in [its] attention to detail that 'The Chairman's Daughter' really hits its stride, a procession of grotesques all drawn towards one club and one man for their own selfish reasons. At only a little over two hundred pages long, this is a book to be taken away and read in one lengthy sitting rather than picked at over a period time, a story which ribs its subject without ever patronising it. A tale that is well worth picking up, uploading to your Kindle and reading at your pleasure." 'Twohundredpercent' website
"Smart, arsey, relevant football fiction." 'Got, Not Got' website
At the age of 29, former England prospect Carl Meacock can only look back on a fractured career marked by too many clubs, injuries, and broken relationships. Discarded both by Crystal Palace and his agent, Gary ‘Fat’ Fee, the pro has only one offer on the table, from “Lincoln’s fourth club”, Dynamo FC, a team affiliated to a local plastics factory that plays in the Central Midlands Football League. Who would be insane enough to make such a move downwards, losing his reputation, his girlfriend and ninety per cent of his salary into the bargain?
Lured by a smart new 4000-seater stadium and the charisma of the club’s wealthy owner and chairman -- inventor of the Margaret Thatcher Poop Scoop and three-times British Black Businessman of the Year, Derrell Dujon --Meacock moves anyway, intrigued by the chance to start again in a new city at a works team with big ambitions. The only snag is a strange clause in his contract forbidding him to start a relationship with Dujon’s daughter.
The player doesn’t think this will be a problem until the daughter shows up in the form of 22-year-old Olivia, the club’s new Community Liaison Officer. And he’s not the only one on the team affected by her beauty. If Olivia watches, Dynamo win spectacularly. When she’s not there, they lose. Will Meacock break his contract to try and win her attention? And who will dare to tell the over-protective chairman that his daughter holds the key to promotion?
