FA Cup Fun - Real Footy: English Edition

Buy here

A nostalgic football novel
You are invited to follow the reminiscing of Mayor Sid Shufflebottom, Chairman of Upper Nozeley Athletic, as he recalls the Lancashire Combination club’s dramatic and extraordinary run in the 1958-9 F.A. Cup.

How does the new manager, and ex-professional, Joe Megson, drum a bunch of talented amateurs into giant-killers?
What are: “Harold’s Hammer”, the “cave”, and the “Witches breath”?
Is a sense of direction actually necessary for a good dribbler?
Can Dick Digglesworth really be trusted?
Where does the laughing gas come in?

Not everything is done by the book, but as Sid says, “It’s all part of the game, tha knows.”

If you haven’t had your fill of hot pot and hot vimto today, you haven’t read:
“Real Footy – the English edition”

NOTE: This is the “English edition” of “Real Footy”. Should you prefer the original version in Lancashire dialect, go to:
