About the Author
Chris Luke, a former National Hunt jockey. He was also whilst in the armed forces a member of the Kings Troop, Royal Horse Artillery musical ride display team, travelling the country and parts of Europe in the early 1970's. In 1977 Chris served for eight months at The Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace as a Royal coachman and State postilion during the year of Her Majesty's Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1977, which included his participation in the Silver Jubilee state ceremony from Buckingham Palace to St Paul's, also other engagements including the carriages parade at Royal Ascot. When all of the Jubilee celebrations were completed he returned to roles within the National Hunt fraternity until 1988 forced to retire through injury. Chris has been a Luton town supporter for over 40 years, a season ticket holder for many years also. His favourite player has to be Graham French who also scored his most memorable goal against Mansfield Town. Chris was also a much respected and successful football coach in South London between the years of 2003 and 2011, coaching and managing a successful Ladies football team and also an equally as successful girls side for the same football club, Flamingo’s Ladies, based in Peckham and later Catford. With Flamingo’s Ladies he won the London AFA Women’s cup on two occasions and runners up once and also runners up with the Under 15’s girl’s side. His Ladies team also won three consecutive promotions climbing the divisions of the Greater London Women’s League. After taking early retirement in 2013, he moved to Erith, on the borders of South-East London and Kent. Chris has been concentrating on his blogging and now moving on to books following the opportunity arising to write a biography. He has one previous book, published in March 2015. MEMORIES FROM THE GREEN CARPET. Which with the assistance of his researcher Tom Wright, covered an array of individuals from the history of horse racing in addition to horses, races and also a piece on the National Hunt Jockey’s Championship from it’s inauguration in 1900, of which Chris is hopeful to turn into a book following the project that has had work commenced on THE GRAND NATIONAL RACES OF 1960 – 1969. He is also working on the biography of former jump jockey Jimmy Duggan.

A very honest no holds barred book where the author will give praise, but will give a bit of balance when the team were going through that end of season slump.
Well worth a read, a very well written book.
