Product description

Synopsis

Alan Shearer was born in 1970 in Gosforth, Newcastle. A football-mad youngster, he captained his school side and wowed spectators with his already amazing skills. Determined to make it in the world of football, he decided to leave school at the age of 15 and headed to Southampton where he had been picked up by a professional scout. Shearer quickly became a sought after talent as he moved on to Blackburn Rovers, turning down a lucrative deal at Manchester United in the process, and in a record breaking transfer deal he finally made it back to his beloved North East when he signed for Newcastle United. He is a star player with dedicated leadership skills. As captain of the Toon Army, he inspires his team and proudly leads them out onto the pitch with determination to win. A footballing legend and hero to the fanatical and faithful Magpies fans, Shearer is one of the most important names in modern football. This book charts his rise to first team fame and his happy homecoming to the proud North.

From the Author

This was my first book and, as such, the finished result was
not perfect.
However, I must point out that I only had three months in which to write it
and my remit was to produce a bog-standard biography of Shearer which
covered the essential elements of his illustrious career.

A paperback version, with amended sections and additional material, is due
out in May 2007.
