The inside story of Premier League Football

On World Book Day 2006, in a unique collaboration by the publishing industry, a series of easily accessible books was published as “Quick Reads.” One was The Team.

I wrote about eleven different football folk. By talking to them all, and glimpsing their lives, I was able to look at football from eleven different and revealing angles.

Learning materials to accompany The Team have been produced as part of The Vital Link’s Reading for Pleasure campaign, funded by the Department for Education and Skills.
