Product Description

About the Author

Ivan Ponting is a seasoned journalist with some 60 football books to his credit. He first became aware of Nottingham Forest one May afternoon in 1959 when, as a soccer-mad schoolboy he was entranced by the imperfect but immeasurably dramatic black-and-white TV images of Billy Walker's team overcoming the loss of Roy Dwight with a broken leg to beat Luton Town in the FA Cup final. Since then he has never stopped following their fortunes. He has been the football obituarist of The Independent newspaper for more than 20 years, and he has branched into the summer game, along with co-author David Foot, for the award-winning Sixty Summers: Somerset Cricket Since The War.
