Mark Metcalf has done the career and memory of Frank Swift proud in this book.

The keeper came from humble beginnings in Blackpool to rise to the very top of the football world in the 1930s and 1940s. He helped Manchester City to First and Second Division championships as well as the FA Cup and Charity Shield. He also made a series of superb performances for England, during and after the war, and he was rewarded by being made captain for the 4-0 win against World Champions Italy in Turin 1948.

The author is meticulous in his details of Swift's career and reveals how he was probably the most loved footballer in the country in the late 1940s. Swift was a giant of a character and he may well have gone on to become a big TV sports presenter until he was tragically killed in the Munich air disaster.
