Possibly the world's first novel about the fast-growing sport of walking football

'As an avid student of football related autobiographies and other publications relating to the game I can say with complete candour that I read this excellent book with a permanent smile on my face. The author encapsulates the West of Scotland genre to perfection.
It is my honour to be Patron of Scottish Disability Sport and Walking Football Scotland, and have been involved in professional football for over four decades, so I applaud the massive development in walking football which will undoubtedly be enhanced by books such as this.
The wonderfully descriptive narrative in these pages will not only be appreciated by those who participate in the walking game but by any football fan who appreciates a really good and engrossing read.'

CRAIG BROWN, ex-Scotland manager and Scottish football legend
