I am delighted to announce my first children’s book – “Football’s Champions of Change”
This inspirational book charts the history of the anti-racism movement in English football and beyond.
This has been a labour of love and serious hard work but I am delighted to announce that my first children’s book “Football’s Champions of Change” will be published on September 14th. Thank you to the publishers Welbeck/Hachette for their expert advice and staunch support. I will be out and about promoting the book during the summer.
This is the synopsis on Amazon.
“This inspirational book charts the history of the anti-racism movement in English football and beyond, shining a light on both the divisive and unifying power of the beautiful game. Discover the star footballers, including the likes of Arthur Wharton and Walter Tull from the early days, as well as modern greats Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka who have faced and fought racial bigotry on the pitch and helped advance the cause. There are also commentaries and insights from coaches, referees as well as grassroots activists who are prominent voices. It also features inspiring vox pops from young, modern-day aspiring players and fans from different ethnic backgrounds, explaining their experiences and their own battle (and triumphs) to be treated equally on the pitch and in society.”
