Born in England in the fifties and emigrated to Australia a decade later with my family. Loved football from an early age playing and keeping my interest through reading and watching. Played representative football throughout my younger and senior years. Took up coaching and reached a state level accreditation. Continued playing and enjoying the game until injury and arthritis stopped my involvement in 2011. My working life has been in the commercial printing trade which I am still doing to this day. I wrote the book because of my love for English football.
