Meeting Lawrie McMenemy…

I interviewed Lawrie McMenemy for my Bobby Stokes book. We met at the Potters Heron – I’m sure many Saints fans will  know the significance of that venue. In the meantime you can watch me waffle on about the experience of meeting Lawrie in this video.


You can pre-order the book on Amazon now. Official book release is Monday 2 May, but stay tuned for more information about a book signing at St.Mary’s on Sat 30 April.

A visit to the Daily Echo…

On Wednesday I was invited to the Southern Daily Echo to meet sport editor Simon Carter and photography archivist Jez Gale, who helped me source some photographs for the book. Thanks to Simon and Jez for being such great hosts and being so helpful. Here’s a quick video showing some other photos from the celebration of the FA Cup Final in 1976.
