FA Cup Fun - Real Footy: Lancashire Edition

Buy here


A nostalgic football novel
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 new manager, and ex-professional, Joe Megson, drum a bunch of talented amateurs into giant-killers?
What are: “‘Arold’s ‘Ammer”, 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 o’ game, tha knows.”

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

NOTE: This is the “Lancashire edition” of “Real Footy”. Should you prefer the english version, go to:
The English Edition of “Real Footy” includes a glossary of slang, but otherwise the content is identical with “Real Footy – th’original”, Lancashire edition.
