In this hilarious book, Mark recalls his time as an amateur footballer with the mighty, mighty, world famous (well in
Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Tunbridge Wells that is!) Bowling Green FC - the pub football team belonging to the hostelry which his
Dad still runs to this day.
Charting his progress as a hot-headed teenage debut, Mark looks back on probably the worst football team in the history
of the pub (season 1987/88) and how things were slowly turned round by manager Kev Lewis. Unfortunately Mark was not in Kev's
plans (they have patched things up after 20 years!!!) so he remembers his controversial transfer to Ibstock Dynamoes and how
he came back to haunt the club he loved.
In 1993, he was forgiven and welcomed back as the "prodigal son" and in an achievement that is still talked-about to
this day, he led his beloved BGFC to the Hood Park Division Two title. It was the beginning of what was a glittering period
in the club's history.
"Marko" also talks about his time with Marlborough Rovers and the antics of some of the youth-team's he later coached,
before settling down and starting a football team of his very own!
It was a book that went down a storm with regulars, fans, players and opponents alike! It was critically acclaimed by
the Ashby and Coalville Times and Ashby Radio and amazingly Mark still has some copies going spare at just two quid. If you
