This review is from: A Man's Game: The Origins of Manchester City Football Club (Paperback)
Authors such as Paul Toovey and Gary James have written at length on the prehistory of Manchester City
F.C. but here Andrew Keenan manages to unearth a mass of new material about the origins of the club and offers a number of important and original interpretations of City's genesis, in particular challenging familiar views about the part played by St Mark's church, West Gorton, in the club's formation. Keenan locates the development of football in Victorian Manchester in the wider context of the city's political and social history but his background in journalism means that the book never becomes dry or overly academic even though it is based on original research into the primary sources. My only complaint is that Keenan's narrative came to a rather abrupt end - let's hope he does a follow up on how 'Gorton Association' club became Ardwick and, finally, Manchester City.
