The A to Z of Sunday League Football is a fascinating and hilarious guide to the ugly side of the beautiful game. Join authors Craig Hazell and Adam Parker as they discover what makes grassroots football so special, and reveal all you need to know to make it in the game. From 'Nuts!' to 'Shanked it!' this book holds the ultimate pitch-side phrasebook, plus a definitive guide to every type of player you will encounter. Inside, you'll meet the people who make Sunday League what it is: from the referees that receive weekly death threats, to the ex-pros who have returned to where it all began. Plus, you'll meet the country's most interesting clubs: from Britain's 'unluckiest' team on a never-ending losing streak, to the prison squad that can only play matches at home. To its followers it's a religion - which might explain why they drag themselves out of bed every Sunday only to be exposed to miserable weather, ankle-breaking pitches and (often) abysmal football. This book celebrates Sunday League football in all its unspoilt glory.
