Having completed every round of the FA Cup in 2013-14, groundhopper and Charity fundraiser, Alan Oliver and his footballing friend, Calvin Wade decided for the 2014-15 season they would move on to the FA Trophy. They would pick a tie in the Preliminary Round and follow the winners of each game thereafter on to the following round, irrespective of where in the country it would take them. Both men were unsure whether the FA Trophy would hit the same emotional highs as the FA Cup. The FA Trophy did not attract the same crowds as the FA Cup, nor grab anywhere near the same media attention. No non-League club would be lucky enough to draw a Premier League club and the financial rewards were far more limited. The competition did, however, provide a rare opportunity for non-League clubs to play at England's national stadium, Wembley.What happened during Alan and Calvin's ten round adventure proved all their doubts were unfounded. In a land of Premier League football that is beamed all around the world, sometimes the stories of the smaller clubs go untold. As Alan and Calvin travelled thousands of miles, up and down the country, their love and passion for the non-League game grew and grew. They witnessed managerial outbursts, an abandoned game, an excellent female referee, a man who made his debut twice and this was all before in the Third Qualifying Round they crossed paths with a special football club, situated in a village of less than 4000 people, called North Ferriby United.Alan and Calvin would be taken on a journey by the players, officials and supporters of North Ferriby United, that would seem far fetched if it was witnessed in a Hollywood movie. It is a tale of a team whose spirit, determination and resilience seemed to know no bounds. Could this side, that looked at first glance like an unspectacular bunch of part-timers, upset the odds and create unforgettable memories for everyone involved with the club? Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.** 50p from the sale of every copy of this book/ebook will be donated to Alan Oliver's fundraising campaign for 'The Christie' (a specialist cancer hospital in Manchester). **

“We all know the big teams and the big money wins ninety nine percent of the time. I know, because I am the one percent.”
“Roy Of The Rovers readers would have written in and said, ‘No, this is too daft.'”
“I told them if you keep a clean sheet, I'll buy pizza for everybody. I think they're waiting for me to offer a hot dog too.”
“Claudio Ranieri? Really?”
“I don’t believe in miracles but this is as near as it gets.”
"It’s difficult for me to describe my emotions in Italian. Can you imagine in English!”
“The fans are dreaming. Keep dreaming. Why wake up?”
. . . . . . . .
If pre-season someone had told you that Chelsea would fail to defend their title, and on the day when the new champions were officially confirmed, Chelsea fans would be chanting the name of the new champions, it would have seemed unbelievable…
From pizza to champagne, from Jamie Vardy having a party to Gary Lineker’s undies, this is the story of the most incredible season in the history of English football, told in quotes by the players, managers, pundits and fans.

Brexit is going to be a right laugh, isn’t it? Whether you believe that the United Kingdom leaving or remaining in the European Union is for the best is a matter for your own conscience.With such a tumultuous event on the horizon it seems only proper that our latest issue turns its attention to the relationship between Britain and its continental neighbours in a football sense: as if it were only football that such a theme could be confined to. As we have so often touched upon in the Pink, what occurs within the whitewashed borders of a football pitch or the exteriors of venerated stadia is not solely related to sport – there are impacts and implications that reach far beyond that.So, while we have to suffer the UK government blundering their way through the whole process, why not indulge in some light relief in the form of our newest issue, themed 'Britain and Europe'.Here's what's included in Issue 21:What have the British ever done for us? - yes they probably shot your ancestors and nicked your country at some point in history, but they gave you football and lots of the good stuff that goes with it. So, you know, that's good.Roll up for the mystery tour - British fans like the idea of Europe, but often the reality doesn't live up to the fantasy.For better or worse - the experiences that have informed British opinions about Europe: both positively and negativelyCasual state of mind - retracing the steps of one of football's most obvious cultural exchangesThe benevolent knight - Sir Bobby Robson criss-crossed the continent inspiring Europeans and changing perceptions about British managers. We recap that journey.The first Mister - the story of William Garbutt: the most important man in Italian footballThe roads less travelled - the modern history of of elite English players abroadThe European ban and making up for lost time - remembering the dark days of 1980s hooliganism and how some clubs have yet to recover fully from being cast outVote Leave: Scotland's 'Junior' Brexit - is the grass always greener on the other side when you split from your previous governing body?Burnley: Just a small town in Europe - how a town and football club has suffered from wildly skewed perceptionsAway is where the heart is - how football shaped one Briton's self-imposed European exileA working class hero is something to be - a Welshman went to Spain and returned a hero, inspiring others to maintain an international outlookThe golden age of Golazos - how the boom in TV coverage of foreign leagues made the British more appreciative of what we have at home and abroad.Football without borders - is the Scottish Challenge Cup a blueprint for future European club competition?Halting the alien invasion - the story of the English FA's early ban on foreign players and the attitudes that resemble those of 'Hard Brexiteers'This is my truth, tell me yours - Mesut Özil is a magnet for criticism, often despite stellar performances. What if anything can he learn from another German import who was able to win over British fans?Take a chance on me - one country likely to maintain its long-established hand of friendship to Britain post-Brexit is Sweden, where the bond between the two countries' football is unbreakableTurning the tide - stagnating at home or take the plunge in a foreign land: why many talented British youngsters see Europe as a more attractive way to the topLessons from the fringes of Europe - With England’s success at the World Cup a not-so-distant memory, Turkey’s similarly unlikely experience in 2002 and its aftermath acts as a warning that reverting to type can have a negative impact on the country’s image
