A must read for any hockey or team sport player. It's easy to relate to the players in that Grantham side, particularly the regulars who constantly show massive commitment and dedication to their sport. The stories of injuries, players not turning up and going to games without a full team, let alone any sort of squad will resonate with sports players across the world. I know for me it brought back thoughts of all of these things and much more. In my time in hockey, I've played in many more games in which my team have lost, rather than one....but these Grantham guys suffered beyond belief, and still carried on, week in, week out. Credit to them all, especially in how they conducted themselves and the way they continued to play the game. A great read!
I have to say John, I really really enjoyed this book. Thank you for putting so much time into making it happen. It flowed wonderfully, kept making me laugh, and was complemented beautifully by my knowing most of the 'characters' personally!! Anyone at the club who doesn't read this is missing out, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in sports in general. Forget Dodgeball, this is a TRUE underdog story!!
