The Bromley boys

£4.99

Product description

In the late 1960s, in the warm glow of England winning the World Cup, Dave Roberts, like most teenage boys his age, was soccer mad. There was just one difference: rather than supporting the likes of soccer teams Arsenal or Manchester United, Dave's team of choice was the ever so slightly less glamorous Bromley Football Club-one of the last genuinely amateur soccer teams left, fighting for survival in the lowest non-league division. This tale chronicles Bromley's worst ever season. Dave turns up to each match with his soccer cleats in his bag, just in case the team is a player short; the team misses so many goals that in one match, the taunting opposition fans actually lose count of the score. The Bromley Boys is the touching true story about supporting a club through thin and even thinner: proof that the more a team may lose on the field, the more there is to gain on the terraces.
