Football book of the year award


I didn't win at the National Book Awards but the judges did say that any of the six books in the football book of the year award, including Outcasts!, could have won the award in that category.

The winner was Duncan Hamilton for Provided You Don't Kiss Me and Sir Bobby Charlton was second with the first half of his memoirs. Well done to both.

The media coverage of Outcasts! is drawing to a close although I did an interview for the student magazine Hullfire. but a couple of TV production companies have shown interest in Outcasts! and if anything definite happens, I will post details on the website.

In a few months time, I will also try a write an epilogue about what happened next to the teams in the book on this blog.

In the meantime, anyone interested in the subject matter will be able to read about subjects like Gibraltar's UK tour in May, the Europeada 2008 tournament, the second Viva World Cup, the game in St Helena and other Non-FIFA football in my regular slot in World Soccer magazine.
